Immigrants & the Sanctuary City: Then and Now

Tuesday, March 6 at 6:30 pm at the Museum of the City of New York

How does the current climate of fear and crisis for immigrants make sense against our city’s historic identity as the nation’s melting pot? On the day after the deadline for the expiration of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), join us for a roundtable discussion with historian Dr. Mae Ngai, Professor of Asian American Studies and History at Columbia University; immigration rights activist and leader Ravi Ragbir; activist leader Ana Maria Archilaof the Center for Popular Democracy; and Bitta Mostofi, Acting Commissioner of the New York City Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs. Moderated by WNYC reporter Matt Katz.
