How Immigration Reform Could Affect Michiganders

Tuesday, Wed. 26, 2014

President Obama said he would craft policy through executive order if Congress refused to act on immigration reform. Politicians from both sides of the aisle don’t think he should act alone on immigration. Regardless of who acts, or who refuses to, the issues surrounding immigration and the people who are coming to this country are not going away. How would immigration reform affect immigrants and DREAMers living in Michigan? Especially with a governor who refers to himself as a "the most pro-immigration governor."

Guests include David Koelsch, professor of law and director of the immigration law clinic at University of Detroit Mercy; Ruby Robinson, staff attorney for Michigan Immigrant Rights Center; Raquel Garcia-Anderson, Vice President of External Affairs for Global Detroit.
