Immigration: Proposition 187 - Five Years Later

1827th Stated Meeting - La Jolla (California)
Ruth S. Adams, Frank D. Bean, Leo R. Chavez, and Min Zhou
November 6, 1999

The 1827th Stated Meeting of the Western Center was held on Saturday, November 6, 1999, at the Birch Aquarium at Scripps, University of California, San Diego. It included a reception, docent tours of the aquarium, dinner, an induction ceremony for new Fellows, and a panel discussion. The subject of the discussion was Immigration: Proposition 187—Five Years Later. It addressed the controversial California ballot initiative that sought to deny education and other services to illegal immigrants. The measure, approved by voters in 1994, was declared unconstitutional and has never been enforced. Ruth Adams, a visiting scholar at the Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation, UC San Diego, acted as moderator. Panel members were Frank D. Bean, professor of sociology, UC Irvine; Leo R. Chavez, professor of anthropology, UC Irvine; and Min Zhou, professor of sociology and Asian American studies, UCLA.
