SECOND HELPING ON IMMIGRATION

Sunday, February 25 at 11:15 AM

 

In the second of a 2018 series of “Second Helping” speakers, your Membership Board is pleased to present Carl Krueger, an immigration lawyer at Dorcas International Institute of Rhode Island. Mr. Krueger will speak about the challenges and reality of being a refugee, DACA recipient or an undocumented resident in RI. Status for documented resident aliens changes daily. Hundreds of thousands who have Temporary Protection Status may now face deportation. Join us for a comprehensive discussion to learn more about Rhode Island’s role in this national debate on Sunday, February 25 at 11:15 AM. Please plan to join us.

 

Mr. Krueger is a 1983 graduate of Boston University School of Law. Since then he has practiced exclusively in the area of US immigration and nationality law. From 1987, Mr. Krueger has been a staff attorney at Dorcas IIRI, a non-profit social service agency providing legal assistance to immigrants, refugees and their families. He is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, ACLU and former board member for six years of ACLU RI.
