HSPRD Attorneys Speak at Northwestern Forums on Executive Orders

On February 16, 2017, HSPRD’s Kalman Resnick, William Schiller and Caryn Lederer addressed Northwestern University community members at a panel discussion on the recent executive order banning travel and other actions taken by the Trump Administration affecting immigration policy.  Mr. Resnick, Mr. Schiller, and Ms. Lederer discussed the status of the executive order and the anticipated replacement order, issues experienced by those in the country and out of the country related to travel and airport detention and questioning, options for Northwestern visa holders, the recent ICE enforcement actions taking place across the country, and rights during encounters with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and questioning by Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

The event, which was moderated by Northwestern Law School Professor Uzoamaka Emeke Nzelibe and sponsored by the Northwestern International Office, was held at the Pritzker School of Law and was the first of two community forums on these issues.

The second community forum will be held at Northwestern’s Evanston campus at the Kellogg School of Management on Wednesday, February 22, 2017.
