As federal policy makers continue to be unable to legislatively address the continuing problems in our immigration system, states and localities have become the new front-lines in dealing with the consequences. But their voices can be overwhelmed in the contentious national debate.
Join the Bipartisan Policy Center for a panel discussion on the impacts to states and localities of the lack of national immigration policy, and the release of our report, A Call for Clarity and Compromise: The Perspectives of State and Local Officials on the National Immigration Debate. The report and event are products of collaboration with the National Association of Counties and the National Conference of State Legislatures.
The event will be webcast.
