To an audience of over 70 people, IASC’s Director, Attorney Michael Doyle, gave a presentation at Norwich Adult Education about the 2016 election and its possible consequences on immigration law and policy. Addressing widespread concerns, Doyle spoke about the threatened elimination of programs like DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and portions of TPS (Temporary Protected Status). He outlined what is known so far and what still remains unknown about the incoming administration’s plans for immigration changes. Doyle reiterated IASC’s mission and vision to provide continued support and commitment to all those who need it during these uncertain times. Doyle also expressed how important community solidarity and supporting one another will be as the nation move forward into 2017.
Doyle and Norwich Adult Education committed to the crowd that follow-up sessions would be planned to help those particularly affected by threatened changes to the law. Norwich Adult Education provides adult learners various pathways to complete their high school education, learn English as a second language, and master the questions and concepts required to pass the U.S. citizenship exams.
