Local Responses to the U.S. Immigration Crisis
Hightstown, NJ, Hazelton, PA, New Haven, CT, Morristown, NJ, Suffolk County and others...

HOW ARE TOWNS and municipalities responding to the immigration crisis? What are the effects on our communities?

Join us for a conversation and debate.

As immigration reform hangs in the balance in Washington, D.C., city and local governments around the country continue to take immigration matters into their own hands. What are the effects of these local responses, such as the "no-questions-asked" policy on immigration status in Hightstown, NJ or the law prohibiting landlords from renting to undocumented immigrants in Hazelton, PA?

  • Muzaffar Chishti, Director, Migration Policy Institute at NYU School of Law
  • Michael Cutler, Fellow, Center for Immigration Studies; former INS agent
  • Heather Mac Donald, Fellow, Manhattan Institute
