— an announcement from the Darien League of Women Voters
Alex Troyb is an attorney with the law firm Benjamin, Gold and Troyb in Stamford where he advises clients on immigration law and regulations. He serves on the Executive Committee of the Fairfield County Bar Association.
He is also a committee co-chair of the Connecticut Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. He represents clients in state and federal courts. He also regularly represents clients before the U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services and the Board of Immigration Appeals.
We are living, Alex points out, in the age of the “30-second sound bite” and it is impossible to discuss the complex topic of immigration in 30 seconds. The tendency to oversimplify the topic has resulted in many misunderstandings about our current immigration laws and regulations.
His presentation will separate the facts on immigration from fiction and discuss the problems faced by individuals, families and businesses in coping with our complex immigration system. All are invited to hear Alex Troyb on this very important topic.
