Legal Rights of Persons With Disabilities Committee Meeting

Legal Rights of Persons With Disabilities Committee Meeting
12:00 p.m. - Legal Rights of Persons with Disabilities Committee Presentation by Professor Janet L. Golden and John T. Duffy:  Individuals with Disabilities and Immigration: The 1924 Immigration Act, Paula Patton, and Implications for Advocacy Today.                                                                          Focusing on immigration in the 1920s, Rutgers Professor Janet L. Golden and Attorney John T. Duffy will trace the history of efforts made on behalf of intellectually disabled children who entered the United States on bond during World War I and were subsequently faced with multiple warrants of deportation. Thanks to the activism of community members and ethnic organizations who brought federal lawsuits on their behalf and reached out to Congress and to Presidents Harding and Coolidge, the lives of these young people and their families were forever changed. The presentation will focus on the example of Paula Patton, an intellectually disabled girl, and on Clara Kinley, the community activist who supported Paula’s effort to avoid deportation. This topic is as current today as it was one hundred years ago.
