Luis Cortes Romero: Attorney and DREAMer
4:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Conference Room B - Hinson Campus Center
Immigration attorney Luis Cortes Romero has a personal stake in the fight to defend DREAMers: He is one. Cortes was brought to the United States by his parents when he was a child, and he grew up undocumented. He went to community college and San José State University before earning his law degree. Now he's suing the Trump Administration on behalf of other DACA students.
Cortes Romero will talk about his own story and the current state of immigration law, before taking questions from the audience.
- Time: 4 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 24
- Location: Campus Center Conference Room B
Admission is free and open to everyone, including students, campus allies and community members. You can obtain a free parking permit for this event by calling 408.864.8749 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
