    Raymond G. Lahoud, a Member of law firm, Norris McLaughlin, P.A., and Chair of its Immigration Law Practice Group, will speak at Moravian Academy and Muhlenberg College on Friday, September 20.

    About the Presentations

    First, Lahoud will speak on imperialism and immigration to the “Latinos in the Lehigh Valley” class at Moravian Academy, 11:00 a.m. – noon. He will discuss his experience working with the immigration process, student and work visas, and the residency/citizenship process, as well as his personal journey as a child of Lebanese immigrants. The purpose of the class is to give the students information to help dispel any erroneous stereotypes and misconceptions they may have about the immigration process and those who are part of it.

    Lahoud will then present “Borders, Nationalisms, Identities: The Ethics of Global Citizenship” program for the Muhlenberg College Center for Ethics. This panel discussion, open to the public, will take place 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. in Miller Forum of Moyer Hall. Theresa Cardinal Brown from the Bipartisan Policy Institute will also participate in the discussion, to be moderated by Ross Dardani, Assistant Professor of Political Science.

    “In a time when immigration is at the forefront of the American political debate, it is important that education facilities open their campuses to discussions on today’s immigration system, not only to answer the concerns raised by students and faculty about current immigration enforcement measures but also to provide an intellectual forum to discuss today’s immigration laws and the future of America’s immigration policies,” said Lahoud.
