Professor and Attorney Susham M. Modi of The Modi Law Firm, PLLC in Houston is widely considered one of the nation’s leading legal minds when it comes to everything related to immigration law and policies. Not only is he well-versed in preexisting case laws and regulations, but he also stays atop the ever-changing landscape of federal immigration policies. Under the current Republican administration, there have been many subtle and not-so-subtle policy changes.
To help bring attention to the changes and spread an understanding of them, Attorney Modi was recently invited to and hosted a speaking engagement and seminar. Titled “An Update on Immigration Policies under the Current Republican Administration,” the seminar focused on the most important changes that have happened in the last year. The speaking engagement occurred on October 2nd, 2018, and took place at the University of Houston Downtown (UHD) Department of History, Humanities and Languages. Topics discussed during this presentation included changes to Temporary Protected Status (TPS), Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), to practical application of change of statuses to student visas, to removal proceeding priority shifts from past Administrations, and changes under Asylum Law as well as updates on the travel ban’s waiver implementations.
Both students of UHD and the general public were invited to attend the seminar. It was considered particularly beneficial to UDH students who study field relevant to immigration, such as law, social work, and political science. Professor-Attorney Modi spoke for about 45 minutes before opening the floor to general questions and discussions.
