Topic:  Issues Making News Headlines

Speakers: Suzanne Blau and Monica Glicken

Join us for an informative presentation on immigration, including the ways people can lawfully enter into and immigrate to the U.S. We will also focus on the current hotly-debated immigration issues, including President Trump’s travel ban, separating children from their parents, and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

Suzanne Blau is an attorney who volunteers at legal immigration clinics in Orange County and also takes cases on a pro bono basis. She has many years of experience working on behalf of low-income immigrants, all of whom have qualified for free legal services. She has worked with asylum seekers (i.e., refugees), domestic violence survivors, human trafficking victims, and abused children.

Monica Glicken is the Directing Attorney of the Immigration Unit of the Public Law Center (PLC), which provides free legal services to low income residents in Orange County. Prior to joining PLC, she practiced for nearly a decade in immigration law.

Don’t miss this enlightening and lively discussion on immigration.
