Discussions about border security often focus on the events taking place in states including Texas, Arizona, and California. But border enforcement also affects the lives of immigrants living and working in New York City.

Unaccompanied minors from El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua are regularly transported here by federal authorities, where many wind up languishing in shelters and detention. The administration’s travel ban has kept people from Iran, Syria, Yemen, and several other Muslim-majority countries from reuniting with family members in New York. And changes to asylum policy targeted at border crossers are also affecting the City’s immigrants.

We invite you to join the Fund for New Citizens in The New York Community Trust and a panel of experts for a timely and important discussion about the implications of federal border policy for local immigrants, and how philanthropy can help.
