HUNTINGBURG — Immigration lawyer Christine Popp travels from Bloomington to Dubois County to help immigrants with legal matters.
She has an office on Fourth Street in Huntingburg, and currently comes for appointments. She also takes calls and emails from her clients.
“It’s a very uncertain time right now with immigration,” she said, “so this is a really pressing need. I didn’t think at first of actually opening this office. But as time went on, the more I thought about it, it just seemed like a really good fit for me.”
(BLOOMINGTON) – Angela D. Adams, owner and managing attorney at Adams Immigration Law LLC, will give the keynote address at Ivy Tech’s Diversity Speaker Series event, “Breaking Immigration Barriers,” on Wednesday, Feb.19 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Shreve Hall at Ivy Tech’s Bloomington campus. The event is free and open to the public.
In the councilors, IJTF found a group that appeared mostly supportive of their view that the county sheriff should not be helping ICE to identify and apprehend people who are suspected of a possible civil infraction. That’s the category of legal violation to which immigration violations belong, Christie Popp, a local immigration attorney with IJTF, told the council.
