As federal policy makers continue to be unable to legislatively address the continuing problems in our immigration system, states and localities have become the new front-lines in dealing with the consequences. But their voices can be overwhelmed in the contentious national debate.
Join NACo, the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) and the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) for a panel discussion on the impacts to states and localities of the lack of national immigration policy, and the release of BPC's report, A Call for Clarity and Compromise: The Perspectives of State and Local Officials on the National Immigration Debate.
