How Executive Orders Affect Immigrants

Executive Orders: A Legal Analysis
During the week of January 23, 2017 President Trump signed three Executive Orders affecting immigration in the United States.  That same week three additional draft Executive Orders on immigration were leaked, but have not yet been signed.  Immigration attorney Laurel Scott, an expert on inadmissibility, will speak about both the signed and the draft Executive Orders, the legal context that they fit into, how the Orders are expected to affect the immigrant population, and what the legal challenges are.  There will be a one hour presentation followed by thirty minutes of questions and answers.
