The Impoverishing Effects of Federal Immigration Policy in California: Psychological, Social, and Economic
February 8, 2018

Conference Poster

The Trump administration has proposed several changes that will affect federal immigration policies and their enforcement  such as the repeal of DACA, a decrease in the number of  H1B visas and  more aggressive deportations of undocumented.

In this conference we present research analyzing how those changes can affect individual, society and the economy in California, focusing on undocumented, on workers and on children and families. A Panel will then discuss specific consequences and the action that local agents are taking in response to those federal policies.
