The landscape of immigration is in flux. Immigrant communities of color are disproportionately affected by changes to immigration. Experts will provide an overview on how immigrants come to and can remain in the United States and will discuss the administration’s current enforcement efforts, including the abolition of DACA and TPS, the presence of ICE in courthouses, arrests of immigrants at ICE check-ins, and the travel ban. Advocates will learn how the current policies affect immigrants of color.
