Welcome Dayton, an initiative of the City of Dayton, OH is hosting a community forum regarding president Donald Trump’s Exec Orders THIS Wednesday, February 8th. It will be at 6:30pm in the Smith Auditorium at Sinclair Community College, Building 12. If you are directly impacted by any of the Executive Orders or simply want additional information, this is a great opportunity to learn more and have your questions answered by immigration attorneys, Jessica Ramos and David Larson.
Mr.Trump’s order bars citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries — Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen — from entering the US for 90 days, all refugees for 120 days and indefinitely halts refugees from Syria but the enforcement of the order was halted by Seattle Federal Judge James Robart, a George W. Bush appointee, last Friday. Since then, the country has been in the midst of a second straight weekend of widespread uncertainty over the controversial ban.
According to a statement from Melissa Bertolo,Welcome Dayton Program Coordinator this Wednesday forum is only the first of these types of forums being planned. Welcome Dayton will hold additional meetings and events with community groups, particularly those directly impacted by immigration law. If you would like to discuss hosting an event to ensure our immigrant and refugee community has access to accurate information and legal advice, please do not hesitate to reach out.
