Immigration Law Broken Down at the Rochester Hills Public Library

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

Heated debate over Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a potential border wall and stipulations for legal immigration have gone so far as to cause a government shutdown. The instability surrounding the subject has left some voters confused and the future of DACA benefactors unclear. To help make sense of where the law currently stands, how it could soon be changing and resources for immigrants looking for help, Wayne State Law Professor Jonathan Weinberg will speak Monday, February 12 at 7:00 p.m.

Wayne State Law Professor Jonathan Weinberg will speak about DACA

“I anticipate talking about the basic structure of U.S. immigration law and the realities of migration to this country; about DACA; about the current Administration’s proposed immigration law changes including family-based migration,” Professor Weinberg says.

Weinberg was a former law clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and then-Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg. His Juris Doctorate is from Columbia Law School and an Artium Baccalaureus from Harvard University.

“Rochester Hills Public Library serves a diverse community. Because of the debate in Washington over immigration, we have a responsibility to provide our residents with the opportunity to dive into the subject beyond the short headlines dominating the news,” says Community Relations Specialist Amanda Harrison Keighley.

Although Professor Weinberg will not be providing individual legal advice, people with specific questions will walk away with clarity on the subject and additional resources.
