PANEL DISCUSSION: KNOW YOUR RIGHTS

The Executive Order on Immigration signed on January 27th, 2017 by President Trump has generated uncertainties and challenges for non-citizens in the U.S. and those seeking to visit, live, work or study here. The Iranian Community of Northeast felt the urge to organize a panel discussion on Tuesday, February 7th, to address the issues and worries of the communities impacted by the Executive Order.
