Posted by Migration Policy Institute on April 26th, 2011

LAPC2011 Mark L. ShurtleffUtah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff kicks off the 8th annual Immigration Law and Policy Conference (held by the Migration Policy Institute, Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc., and Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, DC in April 2011) with a speech focused on his state's novel approach to immigration policymaking and the role the Utah Compact played in re-orienting the debate. The Utah Compact was developed over several months by groups and individuals concerned about the tone of Utah’s immigration discussion. Shurtleff is now leading the campaign for a National Compact mirrored on the Utah Compact. Shurtleff was introduced by Migration Policy Institute President Demetrios Papademetriou.
