Tulsa immigration law lawyer Lorena Rivas has proven her prowess as being knowledgeable on all immigration law issues so much so the Fry & Elder trial attorney was recently interviewed by Tulsa ABC affiliate KTUL Channel 8 TV.
Rivas, who last month was featured in the Tulsa Business & Legal News, was interviewed by KTUL Channel 8 for a segment on our country’s possible future immigration policy should Republican candidate Donald Trump get elected president. CLICK HERE to watch the clip and read the accompanying story.
Rivas told the KTUL Channel 8 that she has received many more inquiries from local citizens on immigration law issues because much of Trump’s rhetoric has centered on immigration reform. Rivas stated the following in the report:
“I have had more questions about this from the general public or from potential clients who ask me what can I do to make sure I am protected if Donald Trump is elected president and he wants to get rid of any foreigner … I think the reason they come and ask me is because of fear. ”
