Immigration Attorneys Tackle Current Issues

Albuquerque, N.M.—Immigration law and the public debate in the current political climate are often confusing and alarming for the average citizen. Changing laws, proposed legislation, and widely differing opinions and requirements among states have led many to describe immigration law as a “jungle.” New Mexico attorneys will have the opportunity to discuss the current status of immigration laws and programs in an upcoming continuing legal education program Oct. 21 at the State Bar Center.

Presenters will include Rebecca Kitson, Lawit & Kitson; Iris Calderon, Calderon Law Firm; Mary Ann Romero, Kretz & Romero; Caterina Kretz, Kretz & Romero; and Brooke Nowak-Neely, Lawit & Kitson.

The Immigration Section is a group of attorneys seeking to both assist and educate the public through seminars, publications, media and educational institutions
