UnidosUS to Unveil New Report Examining Full Scope of Trump’s Anti-Immigrant Campaign

March 7, 2019

WASHINGTON, DC—On Friday, March 15, UnidosUS (formerly NCLR) alongside leading policy experts will unveil findings of a new report exploring the systematic harshening of our nation’s immigration policies under the Trump administration. From an uptick in worksite raids to strong-arming state and local governments to engage in immigration enforcement, the report outlines the full slate of policy directives and tactics employed by the Trump administration to disrupt the lives of immigrants of color—and the long-term impact this will have on the nearly six million U.S.-citizen children at risk of being separated from their parents.

The event will provide an in-depth look at the scope of immigration policies and enforcement practices issued under the direction of the Trump administration, and the long-term implications for millions of American families.

Interested media should RSVP to Gabriela Gomez at ggomez@unidosus.org or (202) 776-1732.
