Mid-Year Review of 2017 States Immigration Legislation
Wednesday, August 16, 2017 2:00-3:30pm EST
This year, lawmakers in all 50 states convened for regular or special legislative sessions. Nearly 300 pieces of immigration-related legislation were considered. They addressed critical topics such as local police involvement in federal immigration enforcement, anti-sanctuary policies in local government and colleges, as well as refugee resettlement.
Join Christy Williams, CLINIC’s attorney on the State and Local Immigration Project, and Jill Marie Bussey, CLINIC’s director of Advocacy, on Wednesday, August 16, 2017, from 2:00 – 3:30 pm EST for a midyear overview of state legislative trends. Key topics include best practices local advocates used to defeat negative immigration bills, challenges advocates faced, as well as predictions for the 2018 state legislative session.
