Recent numbers suggest that Greater Kansas City is home to more than 135,000 immigrants. Decades of change to U.S. immigration policy have impacted our communities in a myriad of ways.
Join American Public Square at Jewell for our third program in the Donnelly Series, presented in partnership with RISE and the KC Public Library, where we will review the history and present state of U.S. Immigration Law & Policy.
Our expert panel will address key topics including changes in asylum process and public benefit rules, U.S. border policy and the future of the DACA program. We will look at data about the role immigrants play in building communities, discuss the impacts of the changing legal landscape, and take a look at how KC residents are responding.
