Whether at the border or here in New York City, immigration today is a hot, often politicized topic. Join us on September 26 on YouTube Live for a panel discussion that moves beyond politics to discuss the demographics of the new immigrants, the complicated and broken system they must navigate, the nation’s need for labor, and the human, family stories that emerge in the courtrooms.

Julia Preston of the Marshall Project, Muzaffar Chishti of the Migration Policy Institute and Judge Mimi Tsankov, President of the National Association of Immigration Judges, shed light on the complexities of the current situation and suggest ideas for reform. Annie Polland, Tenement Museum President, moderates the conversation from our recreated 1930s Baldizzi apartment, offering historic connections and introducing your questions and comments into the conversation.
