Do you work with or serve the immigrant community and have questions about the immigration system, immigration enforcement, or how immigration issues affect your clients and their families? The Skagit Immigrant Rights Council is hosting a training in Mount Vernon by Jorge Barón, Executive Director of Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, for social service providers and others interested in learning more about this important topic. Administrators and elected officials are also encouraged to attend to learn how their decisions and service models impact our immigrant community.

The training will include an overview of the immigration system and immigration status. 

We will also answer questions such as:
- Who will qualify for the President's new actions on immigration?
- What barriers prevent immigrants from accessing services?
- What happens when people are detained by immigration authorities?
- What protections are available to immigrant victims of crime or survivors of violence?
- What resources are available in the community to help?
