Strategies for Elected Officials to Oppose USCIS’ Latest Wealth Test on Immigrants
Dec. 6, 2019 | 1 - 2:30 p.m. ET | Free
USCIS’ proposed fee policy presents a significant barrier for many immigrants to seek the life-saving protection of asylum and to obtain immigration documents they need for work, school and to access community services. State and local governments have a stake in protecting immigrants’ access to fair and affordable opportunities to immigration benefits that promote full integration and enable immigrants to continue contributing to the economic prosperity and social development of their communities.
Join us to learn about the potential impact USCIS’ proposed schedule could have on local residents, as well as states’ economies and work forces. The presenters will share strategies for how elected officials and community stakeholders can fight back against the rule. A recorded version of this webinar will be posted on our website.
