What is a sanctuary city? What does it mean that Minneapolis is a sanctuary city?
What can local law enforcement and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) do on and off campus?

Presenters will discuss what these questions mean in both law and in practice, and what may change in the coming months.
