Aleksandr Y. Troyb will speak on “Myths about Immigration Rules,” at The Retired Men’s Association (RMA) Meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 14 at 11 a.m., at the First Presbyterian Church. The program is free and open to the community.
As social media has proliferated and increasingly influences us, more people turn to Facebook and Twitter for news. It has become apparent that we are living in the age of the “30-second sound bite.” Unfortunately, it is impossible to discuss a topic as complex as our immigration system in 30 seconds. The tendency to oversimplify this topic has resulted in the perpetuation of many myths about our current immigration laws and regulations. This presentation will separate “fact” from “fiction,” and will elaborate on some of the problems faced by individuals, families, and businesses trying to navigate our complex immigration system. The presentation will also look at past proposed legislation and will discuss possible future immigration reform bills.
