Event description

Description

New restrictions on immigration and increased immigration enforcement being pursued by the Trump Administration are reshaping U.S. immigration policy. To understand how the new environment is affecting people, the Kaiser Family Foundation will hold a public briefing at 9:30 a.m. ET on Wednesday, December 13 to examine the experiences of immigrant parents and children, including immigrants who are undocumented and those lawfully present. At the briefing the Foundation will release a new report, Living in an Immigrant Family in America: How Fear and Toxic Stress Are Affecting Daily Life, Well-Being, and Health, based on focus groups in eight cities and four states with 100 parents in immigrant families from 15 countries, as well as telephone interviews with 13 pediatricians who serve immigrant communities.

KFF Executive Vice President Diane Rowland will moderate the briefing.

Panelists include:

Samantha Artiga, Director of the Disparities Policy Project at the Foundation, who will present key findings from the Foundation’s new report;

Jenny Rejeske, Senior Health policy Analyst at the National Immigration Law Center, who will provide an overview of recent policies affecting immigrant families;

Lanre Omojokun Falusi, MD, FAAP, pediatrician, Children's National Health System and past president, American Academy of Pediatrics – Washington D.C. Chapter, who will provide perspective on the report findings and insights from her experiences serving immigrant families.

Breakfast and registration begin at 9 a.m.

The event in the Foundation's Washington, D.C. office is open to the public.
