Understanding Detention and Deportation
Wednesday, August 2 • 7:00 p.m. • Sanctuary at Unity Church
Virgil Wiebe is the Robins Kaplan Director of Clinical Education and a Professor of Law at the University of St. Thomas, where he leads the immigration clinic. He has been practicing immigration law since 1995. Virgil will address the topic of deportation and explore questions including: How does someone become subject to deportation? What are the various legal methods for removing someone from the United States, and how can they be challenged? How do the criminal justice and immigration systems interact? What are the differing roles of law enforcement, immigration authorities, and the courts? What has been the role of prosecutorial discretion in this system, and how has it changed under the current administration? Virgil will answer these questions and more! This event is organized by the St. Paul Sanctuary Congregations Coalition, in partnership with ISAIAH.
