Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 30, 2015
Demonstrating its support of organized labor, on January 29th, the Williams Kherkher Law Firm hosted an invitation only Labor Luncheon and immigration discussion at its Houston office. Williams Kherkher brought in noted immigration expert and board certified attorney Kathryn Karam to speak to union leaders in the greater Houston area. “Williams Kherkher has always been a strong supporter of unions, and this meeting is an example of how we want to make them successful and be a resource to laborers everywhere," said Jim Hart, Partner at Williams Kherkher.
Kathryn Karam led a discussion with Houston area labor leaders about the Executive Action on Immigration by Obama, and what it might mean to their unions and their members. “The failure of Congress to act on immigration reform has left the regulation of who can come into our country entirely out of step with the economic and social needs of our country," said Kathryn.
Navigating the immigration system, whether to bring a talented person to the Houston area to work, to unite a family, to escape violence, or for any other reason, is a daunting challenge. The event educated unions on how to navigate the immigration system and provide accurate, valuable information to those that want to utilize the action by President Obama. Having an experienced advocate on your side who knows how to address complicated problems can make a significant difference, and that is what Kathryn Karam and Williams Kherkher are committed to do.
The discussion provided a broad immigration overview, talk about the options for the undocumented, and what employers can do for their employees. The program also looked at the ways to qualify for DAPA and DACA programs, and what undocumented individuals may be able to do to become legal workers in the United States.
Kathryn Karam and Williams Kherkher will continue to be a source of knowledge for unions on immigration and other legal issues.
