*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.*

In the first eight months of the Trump administration, arrests and deportations of immigrants rose 40 percent versus the year before. The new administration’s decision to halt prioritization of certain immigrants for enforcement, and instead treating all unauthorized or otherwise deportable individuals as candidates for removal, has fueled this surge.

Yet it may not last. A new report from Migration Policy Institute finds it is “unlikely” the current level of removals will continue. Growing opposition—in the form of welcoming or sanctuary policies—from state and local governments, with whom 70 to 85 percent of deportation cases have originated in peak enforcement years, has dramatically reduced the number of immigrants caught up in the removal process.

Learn more about these trends during this call, which will feature two authors of Migration Policy Institute’s report, Revving Up the Deportation Machinery: Enforcement under Trump and the Pushbackbased on their study of 15 localities around the country, including ICE field offices in Atlanta; Arlington, VA; Chicago; Houston; Los Angeles; New Orleans; and New York.

  • The rise of arrests and deportations of immigrants 
  • State and city policies and community efforts such as “know-your-rights” trainings
  • Legal representation for those in removal proceedings and how it has narrowed the deportation pipeline
