On Saturday, June 9, the Honduran Embassy will present a day of free presentations for members of New Orleans’ Honduran community with immigration concerns. The day was inspired by questions that arose after the Trump Administration announced that those from Honduras in the United States under Temporary Protected Status will have one more opportunity to renew their status or find other legal status before they will lose status and the ability to work legally on January 5, 2020.
Gasparian Spivey’s Leah Spivey will do a presentation laying out options for people seeking permanent residence through employment, and she’ll talk about the status of DACA. She will also be available in an intake/screening session to discuss legal immigration options with individuals along with other attorneys and legal organizations.
The event will take place at Christ Church Cathedral on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The schedule will be as follows:
9 a.m. - 101 Asylum and Withholding
10 a.m. - Humanitarian-Based, Family-Based, and U Visas
