Event description:

Approximately 5.5 million children and adolescents (with most being U.S. citizens) are growing up with at least one undocumented parent. What does that mean for their future role in the U.S. economy? AS/COA and the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) held a discussion on this issue with experts who include the authors of Growing up in the Shadows: The Developmental Implications of Unauthorized Status.
