Immigration in the U.S. is a complex, opaque, slow-changing system with massive ripple effects in our local community. It can feel too overwhelming to engage, but an excellent first step is to educate yourself on what is currently happening. Hear from Ryan Brunsink, an attorney who works in immigration law for a respected, local nonprofit. He will discuss the current immigration crisis, its history, and concrete steps that can make a difference.
- What changes has the Biden administration made?
- How has the closing of the ICE detention center at York changed immigration issues locally?
- What immigration issues are on the horizon?
The system may seem broken, but there are still ways to bring hope to individuals. Due to requests from the community, PRC began, and continues to expand, its work in immigration, often responding to immediate needs to fill gaps in the current system. Hear about PRC’s current work and ways that you can get involved.
Ryan Brunsink is the Managing Attorney for the Detained Program at Pennsylvania Immigration Resource Center (PIRC). PIRC provides access to justice for vulnerable immigrants in detention and in the community through legal services, education, and advocacy. The detention program helps educate detained immigrants about their rights in a complex legal system and provide legal representation for the most vulnerable.
