Learn more about immigration-related executive orders this month

The community is invited to hear Mihaela Britt, attorney at Britt Immigration Law LLC, discuss the recent executive order related to immigration during a talk this month at Missouri University of Science and Technology. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask her questions about current policies and their legal implications related to higher education and international student visas.

The event, titled “Building Bridges – Dialogue to Strengthen Community,” will be held 5-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28, in Room B-10 Bertelsmeyer Hall, located at the corner of North State and West 11th streets on the Missouri S&T campus.

Britt’s talk will focus on her interpretation of executive order 13769, “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States.” The order was signed by President Donald Trump on Jan. 27, 2017, and places limits on travel to the United States from several countries.

This is the third event in the “Building Bridges” public discussion forums. The forums were developed by the students and staff in the international and cultural affairs office at Missouri S&T. The events identify topics of concern among S&T’s international students and provide a forum to inform and gather feedback from the campus and community.

Britt has 10 years of experience in higher education working with international students and scholars on immigration issues. An immigrant herself, Britt has navigated the process and helps others to realize their dreams in the United States. She earned her law degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia and is licensed to practice law in the state. Britt also is a member of the National Association of Foreign Student Advisors and the American Immigration Lawyers Association.

The event is sponsored by Missouri S&T’s international and cultural affairs office.
