California Forum Focuses on Immigration Enforcement Impacts on Children

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, independent commission of the federal government, sponsors advisory committees in every state.  Composed of local representatives, these committees serve as the eyes and ears of the Commission outside of Washington, D.C. 

The California Advisory Committee is hosting an important forum on March 4, in Chula Vista, California: a community forum to hear from members of  the public on immigration enforcement impacting California children.  The Committee will examine the impact of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) enforcement practices on access to public education for California's K-12 students; access to equal protection under the law for individuals based on their perceived national origin; and the extent to which due process is denied to students and their families. 

For those unable to testify in person, the Committee will accept written testimony submitted to by April 3, 2020.  More information about the upcoming forum is available here.
