Immigration and Deportation

Immigration is the single most important issue in the country, according to a recent national poll. Over the past year of fierce controversy, the DACA program has been derailed; refugee visas have shrunk; and immigration arrests, family separations, and deportations have soared. Join us to hear about the implications of these issues from speakers on the front lines of our immigration debates. 



Emily Ngara, Attorney-in-Charge, Deportation Defense Clinic at Hofstra’s Maurice A. Deane School of Law
