This event marks the release of the MPI brief: Executive Action for Unauthorized Immigrants: Estimates of the Populations that Could Receive Relief

With the Obama administration contemplating executive action in the immigration arena, immigrant-rights leaders, members of Congress, and others have proposed a number of options for actions that President Obama could take to provide relief to more of the nation’s estimated 11.7 million unauthorized immigrants. Among the options are extending deferred action to populations beyond those eligible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and further refining the enforcement priorities that guide deportations. In this briefing, Migration Policy Institute experts will unveil the findings of new research that provides estimates of the numbers who may benefit from potential approaches to administrative relief.
