Description

The first quarter of the year is not quite over, yet seemingly every week has brought major developments in the immigration policy sphere. This month alone, the Department of Justice sued California over three recently passed 'sanctuary' laws, USCIS removed 'nation of immigrants' from their mission, and the March 5 deadline for Dreamers passed without a bill. Meanwhile, administrative changes have shifted asylum interviewing and review processes, while the Supreme Court ruled that detained immigrants have no right to a bond hearing under a 1996 immigration law. This call will review the significant shifts of the past several months, with a focus on the tensions between federal immigration enforcement and local government responses. Join us to get up to speed on recent policy developments and learn how funders can respond.
