Today, along with UAW Local 2865 (the union for TA’s, Tutors and Readers at UC), we hosted an information panel about international travel, visas and immigration, and the recent Executive Orders regarding immigration.

The discussion featured Ginger Jacobs, immigration attorney with Jacobs & Schlesinger LLP and Pedro Rios, Director of U.S./Mexico Border Program, American Friends Service Committee.

Close to 100 Postdocs, students, and members of the community in attended and engaged in a lively and informative question and answer session on how the Executive Orders impact our international community, what rights international student and scholars have, and what to do in case of detention, among other topics.
