Listen to the Recording: Immigration Update: What’s Happened and What’s Next?

By Hannah Graf Evans, June 19, 2019


On June 18, 2019, FCNL’s Immigration and Refugee Policy team, Hannah Evans and Gabriela Viera, offered a special briefing. Listen to the recording to hear about how our immigration priorities have played out in D.C. and how you can take action on the next steps to advancing political change.

More than 70 of you tuned in from 31 states. If you were not able join us, I encourage you to listen to the recording.

Right now, the Senate is considering a funding response to the humanitarian crisis in border communities and developing a spending bill for next year. If the call inspired you, please consider taking action now by donating or by writing to your Senators about the need to respond with true humanitarian funding while reining in enforcement funding.

Please also see our update on the wins included in the House spending bill and recommendations for addressing the humanitarian crisis at the border and in the Northern Triangle of Central America.
