Understanding Deportation with Virgil Wiebe

Wednesday, August 2, 7:00pm – 8:30pm CDT
Unity Church – Unitarian | 733 Portland Avenue, St. Paul

Virgil will address the topic of deportation – how does someone become subject to deportation? What are the various legal methods for removing someone from the United States, and how can they be challenged? How do the criminal justice and immigration systems interact?  What are the differing roles of law enforcement? Federal immigration authorities? The courts?  What has been the role of prosecutorial discretion in this system, and how has it changed under the current administration? Virgil will answer these questions and more! This event is FREE and open to the public. A free-will offering will be taken to raise funds for organizations working on immigrant rights.

VIRGIL WIEBE is the Robins Kaplan Director of Clinical Education and a Professor of Law at the University of St. Thomas, where he leads the immigration clinic. He has been practicing immigration law since 1995.
