UNAUTHORIZED IMMIGRANT PARENTS: SEEKING A COMPASSIONATE RESPONSE – Dr. Sue Kenney

April 10, 2016 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Share this

Dr. Kenney will address the difficult decision that some parents must make to leave their children behind in their country of origin, and the equally untenable flip side of this issue:  undocumented parents who face deportation, and must decide whether to leave their American citizen children behind in the U.S.  She will also discuss the 3.6 million unauthorized parents who are potentially eligible for DAPA (Deferred Action for Parental Accountability), the Obama Administration’s program to defer deportations of these parents for three years. Immigration is one of the issues that the UU Legislative Ministry addresses.

Dr. Sue Kenney’s Bio:

Dr. Sue Kenney became interested in immigrants’ rights work during her years as a restaurant owner in Hackensack, New Jersey.  She joined First Friends, an immigrants’ rights advocacy group in 2011, and has been visiting undocumented immigrants being held in detention ever since.
