AJC Cincinnati and JCRC Present: Community Immigration ForumName: AJC Cincinnati and JCRC Present: Community Immigration ForumDate: March 14, 2018Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM EDTEvent Description:
American Jews were all immigrants to this country, some recent and others long ago. Remembering our own immigrant experiences and the unprecedented opportunities we enjoyed, what policies do we want our country to adopt for young adults who were brought here as children but lack proper documentation? What types of immigration laws are fair and just?
The AJC Cincinnati and JCRC Community Immigration Forum will examine the current issues of the immigration debate.
