St. Thomas Law Professor Invited by New York City Bar Association to Participate in Discussion on "Intro 410"
St. Thomas Law Professor, Lauren Gilbert, has been invited by the New York City Bar Association’s Committee on Immigration and Nationality to participate in a panel discussion in New York on June 24, 2014, on “Intro 410.” Intro 410 is a proposal before the New York City council that would allow noncitizens with legal status to vote in municipal New York City elections, such as for mayor, city counselor, borough president, etc.
Professor Gilbert has been asked to contribute her expertise regarding the full legal dimensions of immigrant integration as it pertains to noncitizen suffrage, which builds on her previous research on the Somalis in Lewiston and her current research on state and local efforts to integrate immigrants, both those legally here as well as noncitizens in unauthorized status.
