Earlier this afternoon, Jomysha Delgado Stephen, President Beilock’s Chief of Staff, sent out an email to the Barnard community about immigration policy information sessions that will be held for students and other community members who are permanent residents, holders of visas, undocumented, or otherwise possibly affected by recent changes to the DACA program. These sessions will be led by legal expert David Ware; after each session, attendees will have the opportunity for private consultations. According to the email, Mr. Ware will “address the latest news on the DACA program, anticipated changes in enforcement practices, immigration status and travel risks, among other issues.”
The sessions will take place next Monday, September 24, from 11:45 am to 12:45 pm and from 1:30 to 2:30 pm. Consultations will be available the same day, from 2:45 to 4:45 pm. Registration for the sessions is available by emailing email@example.com by this Wednesday, September 20; and registration for consultations is available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If any Barnard community member is unable to make the scheduled times next Monday, but is still interested in a consultation, Barnard will cover the cost a consultation with an outside immigration counsel – scheduled at that community member’s convenience.
Stephen’s email concludes: “The College remains committed to serving the immigration and travel needs of our community.”
