Recent White House actions on immigration have created confusion for students and public schools. Join Husch Blackwell Education and Immigration attorneys and Gabriela Uro from the Council of the Great City Schools for a discussion of the developments in immigration law enforcement and their interplay with the constitutional and statutory rights of immigrant students.


  • The Status and implications of recent executive orders and agency memoranda on immigration law enforcement;
  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”);
  • School district responsibilities under Plyler v. Doe to provide free public education to undocumented immigrant students;
  • Responsibilities to protect student privacy under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”); and
  • Practical ways to navigate these complex and seemingly competing mandates.
