Pipeline Call on Immigration Reform and the National Impact

2:00 - 3:00 PM EDT

The United States has a rich history as a nation of immigrants. For many decades, however, our immigration policies haven’t met our nation’s economic needs or adjusted to our nation’s changing demographics. Today the U.S. foreign-born population stands at 40.4 million foreign-born people—neighbors, family members, and friends who enrich our culture and help grow our economy. This community is composed of 15.5 million naturalized U.S. citizens, 13.1 million legal permanent residents, and 11.1 million unauthorized migrants. Over the next several weeks, Congress will debate an historic overhaul of the country’s immigration system that will create a road map to legal status and eventual citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. Please join us for an analysis of upcoming immigration legislation and the implications of reform for the country. Please join us for our May Pipeline Call with:

Angela Maria Kelley
Vice President, Immigration Policy


Marshall Fitz
Director, Immigration Policy

Moderated by

Carmel Martin,
Executive Vice President, Policy
