(SACRAMENTO, CA, 7/28/2008) – The Sacramento Valley office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-SV) recently held a public forum featuring Department of Homeland Security (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) Regional Lead for Community Outreach Janna Evans and CAIR-SV Executive Committee Member Imran H. Khan, Esq.
More than 60 community members attended the forum, which was held at Masjid Annur Islamic Center in Sacramento, to learn more about immigration law and about how to access available resources.
“U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services appreciates opportunities like this, where people come eager to learn about the law,” said Evans. “Unfortunately, a lot of unscrupulous practitioners take advantage of innocent people by making promises that are hard to refuse. Our goal in performing outreach is to educate people about a very complex statute and separate fact from fiction.”
CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties group and has 35 offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, protect civil liberties, and empower American Muslims.
