Immigration Attorney Paul Bertoni
Program on Legal Immigration.
Tuesday, November 13, 7-9 pm
Please note change of venue: Danville Congregational Church, 989 San Ramon Valley Blvd, Danville
The United States has been the top destination for immigrants since 1960, with onefifth of the world’s migrants heading here as of 2017. Despite our long history as a magnet for immigrants, Americans have oscillated between perceiving immigrants as valuable assets or as major challenges, whether for cultural, political, or economic reasons. Our immigration laws have reflected those changing perceptions.
Immigration attorney Paul Bertoni will help us understand the current standards set for legal immigration into the United States. Immigrants face a maze of regulations, whether they seek visas, permanent residence, or waivers. Come take a look at the complexities behind the headlines about walls and illegals. Coming into the U.S. legally also has its oddities, perils and pitfalls.
$5 donations to AAUW gratefully accepted, supporting gender equity for women and girls through research, education and advocacy. More info at https://daw-ca.aauw.net/programs-2/
