Approximately 5.5 million children and adolescents (most of them U.S. citizens) are growing up with at least one undocumented parent. What does that mean for their future role in the U.S. economy? Join Americas Society/Council of the Americas and the New York Immigration Coalition for a discussion of this issue with experts, including the authors of the report Growing up in the Shadows: The Developmental Implications of Unauthorized Status (Harvard Educational Review, 2011).
