Just Borders: Place-Specific Duties and the Rights of Immigrants
With Pauline Ochoa Espejo, Haverford College.
There is currently a hot political and legal debate on whether and why immigrants should be allowed to stay in the United States. But putting partisan politics and legal considerations aside for a moment: What is the right moral criterion to decide whether an immigrant should be allowed to stay in a liberal democratic country? In this presentation, Pauline Ochoa Espejo proposes that we take place seriously, rather than letting identity decide who has rights to stay.
