Hausman Family Brunch

David Hausman will be here to talk about the work that he and his colleagues do at the ACLU's national immigrants' rights project and how that work has changed since President Trump has taken office. In particular, what it has been like litigating against Trump's Muslim Ban and family separation policies; retelling some clients' stories. Unfortunately, the ban and separation policies are only the most visible elements of the U.S.'s draconian immigration enforcement system; discussions will include lesser-known, but equally brutal, policies that they are working to end.


David Hausman is an attorney at the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project in New York. At the ACLU he has helped sue the government over the Muslim Ban, arbitrary termination of DACA grants, prolonged imprisonment of refugees, and the imprisonment of immigrants on the basis of poverty alone. David is also a Ph.D. candidate in political science at Stanford, where he is on leave; his dissertation uses government data to track the effects of immigration enforcement policies. Before graduate school, David worked at the International Center for Transitional Justice in Cape Town, South Africa and the Innovations for Successful Societies project at Princeton University.
