PHILADELPHIA TO HOST IMMIGRATION FORUM AT DNC

On July 25th, the opening day of the Democratic National Convention (DNC), Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney will join Bill de Blasio, the Mayor of New York, and Greg Stanton, the Mayor of Phoenix, for an Immigration Forum, to be held at the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia.  It is said that the goal of the forum will be to discuss immigration issues impacting our cities and our nation and to brainstorm about how to create smarter and more compassionate immigration policies. 

Mayor Kinney, who is one of the honorary chairs of the DNC stated: "We want to talk about best practices and how we can work together to move the (immigration) process forward.  Immigration built our cities and we are in a dysfunctional immigration discussion nationally and we need to figure out how we are going to get out of it and hopefully with a new president, Hillary Clinton, we will be able to move in a better direction."

In addition to the Immigration Forum, immigration advocacy groups are reportedly planning a big DNC march.  Thus far, Escuela Tlatelolco, Padres y Jovenes Unidos, and NEWSED have announced their intentions to demonstrate with the hope that the march will raise the profile of immigration reform issues during the convention.

At the Shulman Law Group, LLC, we remain committed to educating our clients and the immigrant community about national programming and events related to immigration issues and topics.  We applaud Mayor Kenney for organizing the Immigration Forum at the DNC.  Please return to the blog section of our website for a summary review of the upcoming Immigration Forum.

To make the long story short - I wouldn't be here now writing this review if it wasn't for him. He fought with me and for me as if he was defending himself and not some stranger from a foreign country. I will highly recommend him - if your case has any chance at all he is the one you need.
