Following recent immigration orders, there is a lot of confusion and concern about what foreign nationals should expect when they engage with various government agencies. This may include domestic and international travel, inspection of personal items and electronic devices, and questioning from law enforcement. Join us for a review of these issues and tips on how to advocate for yourself, when needed. A local immigration attorney from the Legal Aid Society and experienced professionals from UR’s International Services Office will lead our discussion.
