City Visions: Navigating the new immigration landscape

Mar 6, 2017


  Host Ethan Elkind and guests discuss the new landscape of immigration under the Trump administration.

 How will Bay Area residents be affected now that ICE officials appear to be widening their enforcement efforts to extend beyond serious criminals?  What does it mean to be a sanctuary city, and what options are available to non-governmental organizations that are interested in protecting their constituents?  Our panel answers these questions and more.

Guests:

Sheryl Davis, Executive Director of the San Francisco Human Rights Commission.  

Grisel Ruiz, staff attorney in San Francisco with the Immigrant Legal Resource Center.

Sandy Valenciano, statewide coordinator for the California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance.
