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.
