Summer 2019 Statement: Re: Immigration Remarks from Penn Law Professor Amy Wax
The Latinx Law Students Association (LALSA) and all sponsoring and co-sponsoring organizations continue to unequivocally support immigrant communities. As organizations devoted to the institution’s stance on collegiality, we strive to make Penn a more welcoming place not only for our members, but also for the general student body. Our commitment to diversity and immigrant communities is founded within our own lived experiences. Many of us immigrated to this country or are the children of individuals who did. Regardless of when we came here, when our parents came here, or even when our grandparents came here, at some point in time, we have all encountered messages that we are not welcome, that our cultures are inferior, or that we should go back to where we came from.

We have come to expect these sentiments from the President of the United States [1] and now, unfortunately, we have come to expect the same from members of the Penn Law community. At the first annual National Conservatism Conference, Professor Amy Wax claimed that United States immigration policy should favor immigrants from Western Countries given “that our country will be better off with more whites and fewer nonwhites.” [2]

These statements are racist. Through them, Professor Wax targets not only Latinx Americans, but she also attacks Muslim-Americans and their families impacted by the Muslim Ban, Asian communities that continue to shape the fabrics of our society, and Black immigrants who have had their home countries villainized as “s*** hole countries.” [3] She attacks all of us.

Nor are they an anomaly. Throughout her tenure at Penn Law, Professor Wax has continuously antagonized students of color and the Penn community. In the two years since Professor Wax disparaged our Black classmates, [4] students of color have continued to feel marginalized, isolated, unsupported, and unprioritized.

At Penn Law, diversity should not be a conversation that only emerges when Professor Wax uses the cover of her tenure to spew racist, anti-intellectual comments. Diversity should be an ongoing dialogue that gains momentum through administration-sponsored events and a fully-developed diversity action plan that our classmates demanded two years ago.

We acknowledge and appreciate the importance of intellectual diversity, but these statements are hateful and perpetuate dangerous, false stereotypes about our communities, our families and us. The effect of these statements, behind a thin veil of intellectual diversity, exacerbate a hostile environment at Penn Law that makes students like us feel like we do not belong. We are vital parts of the Penn community, not in spite of our cultures and backgrounds, but because of them. We demand that the administration act like it.

Penn Law should celebrate diversity and respond by:

1) Explicitly denouncing Professor Wax’s statements.
2) Working with the Sponsored organizations below to develop a Penn Law action plan. As stated in Penn BLSA’s 2017 petition [5] regarding racist remarks made by Professor Wax, if Penn Law wants to create an inclusive and collegial environment for ALL students, then the school must take the appropriate measures to educate students and faculty by mandating substantial diversity, bias, and sensitivity training.
3) Relieving Professor Wax of all teaching duties, as they serve to further her platform and lend her legitimacy.
4) Hiring more persons of color as tenured professors.
5) Coordinating an in-person meeting at the start of the school year with Dean Ruger, Penn’s Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Programs, and the sponsored student organizations below.

Professor Wax may believe she has the ability to demean the very students she teaches without consequence, but Penn collegiality should mean that the law school upholds its values of diversity and inclusion to make all students feel welcome—regardless of their heritage and immigration status.
