Immigration Update DACA

“Urgency on Capitol Hill has mounted amid reports that Trump will end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which has allowed nearly 800,000 people to live and work in the United States without fear of deportation. The Trump administration, which is scheduled to announce the decision Tuesday, is leaning toward terminating the program but delaying enforcement for six months to give lawmakers time to find a solution, according to people briefed on the White House’s deliberations.”

#Trademark Tuesdays

Some of the lovely women I met. Business Owners!


Trademark Tuesdays! What’s your brand all about?! Besides having the logo, do you pitch your business in the right fashion, do you give back & support your community the way you want it to support you?! Introspective questions! Met some #business owners, start-ups, all asking themselves those questions & more at a recent event.  

The PowerUp competition, organized by the Brooklyn Public Library, held the event at the BKlynCommons. A great space for companies & PowerUp participants to utilize for their #business, & events located on Flatbush. 

You should also look into entering the PowerUp competition to get your business funded, you can win $15,000 & gain valuable financial & marketing skills. I found out about it 14yrs ago when I returned from #lawschool, a law practice was not exactly the right business for this competition but I had other ideas & would tell others to look into entering. So if you have a great idea, don’t wait get started & connect with a community that supports you!

Immigration Update:  Supreme Court Decision – Travel Ban

“Approximately 72 hours from the release of the decision, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials, consular officers, and others will be authorized to ban refugees and travelers from the six affected countries who cannot show a bona fide relationship with a U.S.-based family member or entity.

Refugees and people with immigrant and nonimmigrant visas will not be banned if they can show a bona fide relationship with a family member or entity in the United States. For individuals, a “close familial relationship” is required.

Travelers may not seek to establish a relationship with an entity solely for the purpose of evading the ban.”
