The positive impact that immigrant populations bring to their adopted countries is now well documented and widely accepted. This is perhaps most evident in the U.S., where immigration has proved a remarkable engine of economic and demographic growth. However, the current political climate and the ongoing debate on immigration reform have not only questioned these contributions but has also led to what some have described as a “criminalization” of immigrants - in a country long known as “a nation of immigrants.”


Please join Asia Society and Asian American Bar Association of New York for a special gathering to mark Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, when we will hear an array of moving personal stories and firsthand accounts of journeys to America. “Here To Stay” will present both the human impact of the modern immigrant journey, the tensions of the current moment, as well as an understanding of how these individuals are contributing to enrich the fabric of American life - just as so many have before. Personal stories will be followed by a moderated panel of experts to discuss the context of the immigration debate today.
