Stetson to Hold Immigration Forum

There is a national debate underway on immigration and immigrant status in America, and much of it has been fueled by new executive orders and stepped up enforcement coming out of Washington, D.C.

Arturo Rios, Stetson University
Attorney Arturo Rios, a Stetson alumnus, will lead the discussion at the forum.

Join Stetson University and Arturo R. Rios, of Rios Immigration Law Firm, a Stetson University College of Law alumnus and adjunct professor, in an open forum discussion on recent changes in immigration actions and law. This event is Saturday, April 1, 1-2 p.m., in the Marshall & Vera Lea Rinker Welcome Center. It is free and open to the public. Cultural credit is available.

As new actions are implemented by the administration, including the president’s recent memo expanding enforcement capabilities, emotions and anxiety in the affected communities have increased.

Following the forum, Rios will hold free, 20-minute clinic sessions. There are only a very limited number of spots, so reserve a spot now or you can sign up at the forum if openings are still available.

This event is sponsored by WORLD: The David and Leighan Rinker Center for International Learning.
