• Rumors of new ICE raids send fear into immigrant communities across the country

    Since January, the Department of Homeland Security arrested over 100 undocumented immigrants in Georgia, Texas, and North Carolina. The raids have rattled immigrant communities across the country; people fear loved ones could be swept up by ICE at any given moment.

Now it is an absolute fact the Obama administration logged a record two and half million deportations, and was criticized and accused repeatedly over the years for inappropriately rounding up people who with minor offences on their record, or with no criminal record at all…right alongside hardened criminals. But Alfredo and Viviana - who were obviously living here in Queens during Mr. Obama’s two terms - say based on what they’ve been hearing from the White House these days, any documented immigrant - criminal or no criminal…is now at risk of a one way ticket out of the US.

Integrating Immigrant Communities into Civic and Political Life A Panel Discussion on the Lawrence Experience Welcome Remarks by Daniel Rivera, Mayor of Lawrence Featuring: Jessica Andors, Executive Director, Lawrence Community Works Sr. Eileen Burns, SNDdeN, Executive Director, Notre Dame Education Center--Lawrence Zoila Gomez, Immigration Attorney Eliana Martinez, Teacher, Lawrence International High School Archon Fung, Ford Foundation Professor of Democracy and Citizenship, Harvard Kennedy School Asma Khalid, Reporter, WBUR (Moderator) Immigration policy and paths to citizenship are hotly contested topics on the national stage, yet the impact of immigration is most often experienced on the local level. Lawrence and communities like it across the country are on the frontlines dealing with important questions and tensions that immigration can present. On a practical level, what steps can a community take to address issues such as integration, identity, and alienation—and their impact on economic security, public safety, and civic health? The panel discussion highlighted how Lawrence has strived to welcome generations of immigrants into the economic, civic and political life of its community. The event was an opportunity to reflect on what Lawrence has learned from the city's efforts to integrate new arrivals: what has worked, what did not work, and what else might the city do.
