Invite: Friday, Nov 16th - Reforming and Improving Low and High Skilled Visa Programs

Since John McCain and Ted Kennedy built the framework for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) in 2005, the policy and political landscape has changed a great deal. Some pieces of CIR have been enacted, some have stalled, and others need updating.  To take a deeper look at how the immigration reform landscape has changed, and what opportunities and challenges lie ahead, NDN/NPI has launched a series of events this past summer called “Rethinking Immigration Reform.” 

The latest in this series will take place on Friday, November 16th for an excellent event looking at ways of reforming and improving low- and high-skilled immigration visa programs. Joining us for the discussion will be a terrific panel of:

Tamar Jacoby, President and CEO, ImmigrationWorks
Alex Nowrasteh, Immigration Policy Analyst, Cato Institute
Josh Bernstein, Director of Immigration Policy SEIU
Jeremy Robbins, Policy Director and Special Cousel in the office of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Director of the Partnership for a New American Economy

The event will take place at NDN, 729 15th Street, 2nd Floor.  Lunch will begin at 12 and the event will start at 12:15. Space is limited so please make sure to RSVP here.
