Amid the global refugee and migration crisis, how is New York City shaping its immigration strategy and policies? In this special briefing, New York City immigration commissionerNisha Agarwal—herself the daughter of Indian immigrants—explains the city's approach.
Nisha Agarwal has been commissioner of the NYC Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs since March 2014. A public interest lawyer, she previously worked with Judge Robert A. Katzmann, chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, to establish the Immigrant Justice Corps, a non-profit that recruits recent law school graduates and partners them with non-profit legal services providers to offer legal representation to undocumented immigrants.
Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Kavitha Rajagopalan will lead the conversation.
Speaker: Nisha Agarwal
