Keeping Everyone Safe: Immigration and Law Enforcement on Long Island

Join Long Island Wins and the Long Island Immigrant Alliance for a panel discussion about the relationship between law enforcement and Long Island’s immigrant community from the perspective of researchers, attorneys and law enforcement officers from both Nassau and Suffolk counties. At "Keeping Everyone Safe: Immigration and Law Enforcement on Long Island," experts will discuss how fear of deportation can make undocumented immigrants wary of approaching local police officers and how those issues of alienation can make police work more difficult. The dialogue should serve as a springboard for further communication and understanding on the issue, ultimately culminating in safer communities for all Long Islanders.

When: Wednesday, December 2, 2009, 7:00 - 9:00pm

Where: Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, 225 Eastview Drive, Central Islip, NY

What: A forum on immigration and law enforcement to ensure public safety in our communities.
