    How Do Immigration Changes Affect Asian Immigrants?

    The Trump administration is ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. What does this mean for Asian immigrants and their families? What other changes to the immigration system are anticipated? Please join Greater Boston Legal Services’ Asian Outreach Unit on Monday, September 18, 2017 at 4pm at Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center (28 Ash Street, Boston) to learn about how these changes affect Asian immigrants. This workshop will be in English and Mandarin.

    AALAM applauds the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Maslenjak v. U.S. which protects immigrant communities and civil rights.  AALAM had joined the amicus brief filed by Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAJC) and the National Association of Latino Elected Officials (NALEO) to express concern with the government’s ability to criminally prosecute naturalized citizens for making minor, immaterial misstatements in the immigration and naturalization process.  AALAM sincerely thanks and congratulates the entire amicus team for their deft, hard work in achieving this result.  Here is a link to AAJC's amicus brief and press release on the Supreme Court's decision.
