There has been considerable discussion in news outlets about the impact of immigration enforcement policies on children and families. Recent incidents across the country and reported in the press have raised alarm throughout immigrant communities. Clearly there is great fear in this hypersensitized environment. To what extent is this ramped-up immigration enforcement impacting our nation’s public schools? How does it vary by region and what is the “collateral” fallout for nonimmigrant students? How are educators reacting, and to what extent is this affecting them? What rights do students have and what happens to U.S.-citizen children when they are sent to a country and school system they do not know? To address these questions, four new research papers will be presented with brief highlights. There will be ample time for Q&A and discussion.
