Legal Issues in U.S. Immigration: Q&A with Attorneys

Monday, September 25, 2017 at 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnhold Hall 55 West 13th Street, Room I-202, New York, NY 10011

- What are my rights as a citizen of a country targeted by Trump's travel bans?

- What legal resources are available for me as someone targeted by the bans?

- What does the repeal of DACA mean for those currently protected?

- How can I be a better ally to those targeted by the ban?

The NSSR Taskforce on Immigration and Inclusion invites all New School students, faculty, and staff to join a panel discussion on immigration law in the U.S. The panel will explain the legal implications of the constantly changing immigration situation in the United States. Topics may include DACA, TPS, the Trump Administration's travel ban, legal protections for activists, the topic of sanctuary, and more. There will be ample time for Q&A and discussion about all aspects of the legal dimension of immigration and citizenship in the U.S.
