Total Credits: 2.0 Professional Practice
 
During the Presidential campaign and post-election, President Donald J. Trump indicated that he would implement significant changes in U.S. immigration law centered on an “America First” platform. On January 25th and 27th, the President signed three executive orders “Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States,” “Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements” and “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States.” The executive orders led to litigation in several federal district courts nationwide.

 
This panel will address a few of these sweeping immigration changes, their impact on families currently residing in the United States and in what capacity the legal profession may be able to meet the needs of immigrant families proactively through family safety planning. Panelists will discuss how to walk a family through a safety plan in a way that will maximize its effectiveness and provide an overview of various custodial and guardianship arrangements for children, both temporary and permanent.  Efforts by legal services providers and the private bar to meet the challenges immigrants face in this new environment will also be discussed.
