*This program is hosted by our partner, Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR), who has extended an invitation to PNY members. Space is limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis.*
Fueled by xenophobia, racism, and hate, the current administration has sought from day 1 to dismantle America’s historical role as a beacon of hope and a land of refuge. An unrelenting barrage of policy changes over the past two and a half years has fundamentally changed how our country treats immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers at our borders and in our communities. These coordinated attacks employ three strategies:
1) Criminalize immigrants through deceitful and destructive narratives
2) Prevent would-be asylees, refugees, and immigrants from entering the country through extreme policies, including family separation and drastic reductions in refugee admissions; and
3) Force those already here to leave through unilateral policy directives that increase enforcement, detention, and deportation.
The immediate human toll of these policies is devastating, and their profound and far-reaching consequences will reverberate for many years to come.
