On November 20, 2014, President Obama announced a series of executive actions that would allow millions of undocumented immigrants living in the United States to seek temporary relief from deportation. Once those actions are able to be fully implemented, certain immigrant parents and individuals who were brought here as children will be able to request deferred action and work authorization. Nearly 200,000 immigrants in Maryland, DC, and Virginia would be eligible, and this could result in an estimated $220M in tax revenue over 5 years. These deferred action policies would significantly expand workforce development opportunities for workers and employers, and also significantly impact social, educational, and health outcomes for immigrant families.

Join us to learn more about the executive actions and efforts being made by the nonprofit sector, philanthropy, and local government.
