Race, Ethnicity, and Politics WorkshopPresenter:Monica W. Varsanyi, CUNY Graduate CenterTitle: “Divergent States: Explaining Immigration Policy Trajectories in New Mexico and Arizona”About the Speaker:Varsanyi is Associate Professor of Political Science at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York (CUNY), and a member of the faculty in Geography at the CUNY Graduate Center. Her research addresses the politics of unauthorized (or ‘illegal’) immigration in the United States, specifically the growing tensions between local, state, and federal governments over immigration policy and enforcement. Her teaching interests include urban politics, immigration law and policy, and research design and methods. She is currently working on two related projects: one that explores growing tensions between local and state grassroots immigration policy activism and the U.S. federal government’s plenary power over immigration; and second, a project that explores the expanding involvement of city police in immigration enforcement and the impact this is having on the relationship between local police and (unauthorized) immigrant communities.
