New American Economy

Now, more than ever, documented and undocumented immigrants in the United States are facing a tremendous amount of uncertainty. With a new Administration that has been vocal about its intent for an aggressive stance on immigration but hasn’t discussed any firm plans, the number of questions grows without answers.

Elected officials, community leaders, and immigration experts will discuss the economic, social and cultural impact extreme immigration policy will have on communities.
