With the new administration, the immigration landscape has changed drastically. We’ll discuss all the aggressive tactics being used to intimidate immigrants, and what we can do about it. On Monday, March 6, 2017 #45 signed an Executive Order allegedly designed to protect American’s from terrorism. This was the second time the administration signed an order of what many say is essentially a Muslim ban. 

At the same time, the administration has authorized ICE to aggressively pursue immigrants in the country without papers and even those protected under DACA have been swept up in ICE raids and deportation proceedings.  Join us as we discuss these many issues with a panel of experts to guide us.

Join us each month! We will air the third Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm EST.
