Camden Conference Talk:
Deconstructing the US Immigration System

Do you want to know how the U.S. immigration system works and understand how the current system resulted in the millions of unlawful residents?  Stephen M. Bander, Esq. will speak on "Deconstructing the U.S. Immigration System"   Stephen M. Bander, Esq. concentrates his law practice in all facets of U.S. immigration and nationality law.  Mr. Bander did precedent-setting work on establishing that persons born outside of Cuba of a Cuban parent with no Cuban residence qualify under the Cuban Adjustment Act.  He received several awards of attorney’s fees for actions brought against U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, as well as over 80 U.S. District Court actions challenging USCIS practice and procedure.

Mark your calendar now for an entertaining evening filled with lots of laughs!

The Friends of Rockland Public Library’s second annual speaker event entitled “Two Old Cops and an Angel” will feature a dynamic trio consisting of Kate Braestrup, John Ford, and Mark Nickerson. Kate is (among many other professions) a chaplain with the Maine Game Wardens. John is a retired Maine Game Warden. Mark is a retired Maine State Trooper.  The evening will include a question and answer time, a reception with food and beverage during which you may meet and talk with the presenters, purchase books and have items signed. Tickets may be purchased closer to the event at the Rockland Public Library for $20 in advance and $25 (cash or check only)  at the door.
