*This program is hosted by our partners, Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) and Funders' Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP), who have extended an invitation to PNY members. Space is limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis.*
On February 11, 2019, President Trump declared a national emergency to secure funding to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Congress stands at the brink of the first-ever bi-partisan rebuke of a presidential executive order, though a vote has not yet been called. There are insufficient votes to override an expected presidential veto. At the same time, a series of lawsuits have been initiated in response to the presidential declaration.
