As many of you know, I am an editor at ImmigrationProf Blog.

We are very pleased to welcome Professor Rose Cuison Villazor to the ImmigrationProf blog as an editor.   

An accomplished and influential immigration and civil rights scholar, Rose joined the UC Davis faculty in 2012 from the Maurice A. Deane Law School at Hofstra University. She has also taught at Columbia Law School and the Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law.

Professor Villazor teaches and writes in the areas of property law, immigration law, race, and citizenship. Her scholarship includes, “The Other Loving: Uncovering the Federal Regulation of Interracial Marriages,” in the New York University Law Review (2011), “Rediscovering Oyama v. California: At the Intersection of Property, Race and Citizenship,” in the Washington University Law Review (2010), and "Blood Quantum Land Laws: The Race versus Political Identity Dilemma," in the California Law Review (2008). She has also been published in the Southern California Law Review, UC Davis Law Review and Southern Methodist University Law Review.
