Moving a National Agenda: Making the Most of Administrative Relief

After several failed legislative attempts at comprehensive reform and decades of advocacy from immigrant communities and their allies, now is a decisive moment. The NIIC will be the largest gathering of leaders in the immigrant rights movement, government, faith, business, academia, and policy since the President announced his executive action. There is a desperate need for coordination, public education, and outreach to prevent chaos and fraud. As a field we must focus on making administrative relief workable, generous, and catalytic.
