The President of the United States and the Attorney General have reshaped the immigration landscape. ICE is more powerful than ever. Many, many people are getting swept up in a broadening net of enforcement. Custody is much more common and getting someone out of ICE custody is harder than it ever was before.

I don’t know what to do!” A mother, brother, husband, or child has just been detained by Immigration and the family has no idea what do to next. Where is the client? Where will they be taken? What happens next? What are the client’s rights? How do the local jails treat immigration detainees and what are the special visitation policies?
This seminar focuses on some of the fundamentals and a few advanced tips of what do to when your client encounters the immigration consequences of criminal charges. If you represent non-citizen criminal defendants you must attend this seminar.
