The State of our Immigration System: Local & National Perspectives
Amidst confusing and sometimes conflicting reports on the current status of our immigration system, it is hard to know what the reality is on the ground for immigrants and asylum seekers. But we know that the U.S. asylum system remains broken and the status of millions of immigrants and refugees is still in limbo, with often devastating impact on our immigrant neighbors here in Greater Boston. Join us for a deep dive into the current landscape to examine the work on the ground and how we can best support our partners in this moment.
