The Migration Crisis in the Western Hemisphere

SpeakerS:

T.H. Eric Adams – Mayor, City of New York
Nicholas Logothetis – Co-Founder & Chairman of the Board, Concordia

Key takeaways & next steps:

  • Lack of coordination by the U.S. government in Western Hemispheric migration goes against American values of opportunity and diversity.
  • Immigration reform legislation at the federal level has been stagnant for decades, despite the urgent need to address population deficits in major cities through immigration employment.
  • Withholding work authorization from asylum seekers and migrants exacerbates financial strain and prevents them from providing for their families, highlighting the need for a more efficient migration pipeline and a dedicated border management authority.

“There is nothing more inhumane than not allowing people to provide for their families.”

T.H. Eric Adams, Mayor, City of New York

“The immigration debate in Congress has been intractable for decades.”
