On June 11th, 2013, SAAPRI co-hosted an interactive panel discussion at DePaul Law School, Lewis Building, Room 241 on immigration reform. The national conversation in recent months has been dominated by comprehensive immigration reform. With South Asian Americans being one of the area’s largest immigrant groups, the event discussed what immigration reform means for our community, how it would affect the continuing immigration of South Asians who enter the United States through employment-based and family-based channels, etc.
Speakers included Ami Gandhi, Executive Director of SAAPRI, Andy Kang, Legal Director of Advancing Justice Chicago, Professor Sioban Albiol of DePaul Law School (Professor of Immigration Law and Policy and Asylum/Immigration Law Clinic), and Tejas Shah, an Associate Attorney at Kriezelman Burton and Associates.
Thank you to all those who attended our event!
