March, 2015 -- On February 15, 180 people – many of them undocumented immigrants – gathered for MACG’s Executive Action on Immigration Training at St. Andrew for a briefing and discussion on the new Federal immigration policy which President Obama issued in November. The training was a success by many measures. Almost double the number of people attended as were expected. But most of all, there was rich discussion coming from different table groups as participants did an analysis together about what the policy would mean for them and their families, and the larger political climate affecting the Executive Action.
