Over the past three years, nearly 3,000 Jews from Argentina—few with automatic legal status or permission to work—have settled in Miami. The greatest challenge for professionals is to find the balance between conflicting values, approaches, and communal objectives, as well as between deliberative planning and immediate response. Another challenge is to protect our agencies from being construed as abetting people who are here illegally.
