Representatives from the New Mexico Immigrant Law Center will speak to Albuquerque Press Women and Friends at their regular meeting on Monday, March 11 at Mimi’s Cafe (4316 The 25 Way). We gather at 11:30 a.m. and the speakers begin at noon.
Associate Director Adriel Orozoco and Quiana Salazar-King, attorney will discuss the increasing demand for immigration attorneys and the ever changing interpretations of the rules and regulations involving immigration. This is a wonderful chance to increase your understanding of the current state of immigration law and the effects in New Mexico.
Orozoco graduated from the University of New Mexico School of Law in May 2016. His Equal Justice Works project is aimed at increasing legal services for immigrants across the state. Orozoco is particularly interested in how employment laws affect immigrants.
Salazar-King is the Pro Bono Coordinator at the NM Immigrant Law Center. She is also an adjunct professor of the Law Office and Judicial Externship class and Social Justice lawyer.
Albuquerque Press Women and Friends is a professional association of communicators. Anyone is welcome at the meetings. The meetings are informal and we order from the menu and non-members will be charged an additional five dollars.
