U.S.-Immigration Policy – The Impact Now and in the Future on Legal and Illegal Immigrants

Location: Bayview Ballroom

The U.S.-immigration system and policy are complex and can be difficult for the layman to understand. The news has been dominated by a plethora of immigration issues including border security, detention of immigrant children, deportation, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Public Charge. As a community, it is important that the diaspora remains informed. This panel will seek to provide information on TPS and Public Charge. The panelist will explain what these policies mean, the implications on the Haitian community and the immigrant population as a whole, and how to collaborate and support frontline organizations that are working to improve these policies.
