Responding to Opportunity and Crisis in Immigration Policy

Date: 3/7/2013
Time: 3:45 PM - 5:30 PM
Location: The New York Community Trust, 909 Third Ave, 22nd Fl.

Last year, President Obama announced Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which temporarily frees eligible undocumented youth from the fear of deportation.  This year, immigration reform for the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States has gained new momentum.  The President and a bi-partisan group of senators are pressing for quick passage of new legislation.  Despite these promising opportunities, more immigrants were deported in 2012 than ever before.  How are these efforts to balance family unity, a thriving economy and immigration enforcement affecting New York City?  How can your foundation support the City’s undocumented immigrants as they hope for new opportunities while coping with escalating enforcement efforts?


  • The current status of federal immigration reform debates
  • Opportunities DACA is providing for our young people
  • The need for legal representation for immigrants facing deportation
  • A model for immigrant representation
