The coronavirus crisis has affected immigrants and the immigration system in a variety of ways. Immigrants in the U.S. who think they may have the coronavirus are afraid to go to hospitals for testing or treatment because they fear immigration authorities. Noncitizens in immigration detention centers are getting sick and dying because of the coronavirus. And certain immigrants are ineligible for coronavirus stimulus checks and other economic aid. Meanwhile, immigrants seeking to enter the U.S. face new hurdles: the U.S. government has temporarily suspended new immigrant visas and imposed travel restrictions on travelers from China and other countries. Most State Department embassies are closed, making it impossible to get visas or employers to bring in needed workers.
Join Cornell law school professors Jakki Kelley-Widmer, Assistant Clinical Professor of Law (Lawyering) and Stephen Yale-Loehr, AB ’77, JD ’81, Professor of Immigration Law Practice, for a discussion of these and other issues and what you can do to help.
