Policy Roundtable and Community Forum on:Dreamers and U.S. Citizen Children exiled in Mexico and Central America

Congressman Alan Lowenthal will host a Policy Roundtable and Community Forum on "Dreamers and U.S. Citizen Children exiled in Mexico and in Central America" to address the fact that over 700,000 U.S citizen children live in limbo in Mexico and Central America due to their parents' deportations from the U.S.

Date and Time:
Monday April 25, 2016 from 10am to 12pm

The Pointe (located inside the Walter Pyramid)
California State University, Long Beach
1250 N. Bellflower Blvd, Long Beach, CA 90840

This forum is intended to educate and inform members of Congress and the California State Legislature about this critical issue that has not been recognized by policymakers and the media. In fact, these are U.S. citizen minors forced into a form of exile, in violation of their constitutional, children's and human rights since they have been forced to leave their homeland upon their parents' deportation.

This event is also aimed at creating a sense of awareness and post-election discussion amongst the public and elected officials, on the need for a humane path towards immigration reform, and the return of U.S. citizen children to their homeland.

The Policy Roundtable and Community Forum on Dreamers and U.S. Citizen Children exiled in Mexico and Central America is envisioned as a prelude to a congressional hearing by the House Foreign Affairs Committee, to be proposed by Congressman Lowenthal next year.
