EAU CLAIRE — Eau Claire immigration attorney Vicki Seltun will present "Why Our Current Immigration System Is Broken: Immigration Basics, Issues and Myths" at 2 p.m. April 17 in Room 301 of Hibbard Humanities Hall at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

Seltun's presentation, part of the UW-Eau Claire Latin American Studies Spring Forum Series and hosted by the university's Latin American studies program, is free and open to the public.

While on campus, Seltun also will speak to students in the economics class "New York City and the Immigrant Experience: An Economic Perspective," taught by Dr. Rose-Marie Avin, professor of economics.

Selton is an attorney with the Eau Claire law firm of Weld, Riley, Prenn and Ricci S.C. She provides a broad range of legal services to employers seeking to hire foreign labor on either a temporary or permanent basis. She also assists individuals seeking to immigrate to the United States on either a temporary or permanent basis. She regularly works with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Department of State and consular posts abroad.

Both Avin's economics class (which included an immersion experience in New York City earlier this month) and the UW-Eau Claire Latin American Studies Spring Forum Series are funded by the Blugold Commitment. In 2010 the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate and the UW System Board of Regents supported increasing the amount of differential tuition UW-Eau Claire students pay, with the new dollars going to fund Blugold Commitment initiatives to maintain and enhance high-impact learning experiences for students.
