We thank Guerrero Yee LLP for this informative video produced by AILA (American Immigration Lawyers Association). Watch Rio Guerrero explain how Temporary Protected Status (TPS) will help 500K+ Filipinos — both documented and undocumented — inside the United States, when the U.S. Department of Homeland Security may grant TPS, and what Filipinos should do next. Rio serves as co-chair of AABANY’s Immigration and Nationality Law Committee.
On Tuesday, April 23, 2013, the Immigration and Nationality Law Committee organized a committee meeting and was honored to have as its featured speaker Rosemary Yu, Co-Director of the Immigrant Affairs Program at the New York County District Attorney’s Office. Ms. Yu spoke about the important work of the Immigrant Affairs Program, which was established in 2007 to investigate and prosecute fraud committed against immigrants, and to educate the public about immigration fraud and related issues through fraud prevention workshops and seminars. Ms. Yu also discussed ways that attorneys can help identify and prevent immigration fraud – an especially relevant and timely topic in light of impending comprehensive immigration reform, which is expected to pass later this year.
