Criminal Bars to Immigration Reform:
Creating a Pathway to Citizenship for All Immigrants
Monday April 29, 2pm EST/11am PST

The Immigrant Justice Network, a collaboration between the Immigrant Defense Project, Immigrant Legal Resource Center, and the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild, along with the Immigration Advocates Network, is a hosting a webinar for grassroots activists and other allies to discuss the impact of federal immigration reform efforts on those with prior contact with the criminal justice system.
The briefing will cover:

  • What kind of crime-related bars are in the “Gang of 8” immigration bill? What does it mean for immigrants accused or convicted of crimes?
  • How can we ensure that federal immigration reform rolls back harsh mandatory deportation laws and allows judges to weigh the individual circumstances of a person’s case?
  • How can we message these difficult issues most effectively to ensure fundamental fairness for all immigrants?
  • Q&A
