PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Kristen Schneck, a Pittsburgh attorney who specializes in immigration cases, says she will meet at Brashear High School on Tuesday morning with a large group of Pittsburgh Public Schools students, who are mainly of Syrian decent.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order temporarily suspending entry into the U.S. of immigrants, and non-immigrants, from at least seven countries, including Syria.

“I am meeting with 30 students at Brashear High School, whose families are recently resettled immigrants in the Pittsburgh area,” Schneck told KDKA-TV News. “A lot of the students have questions about what’s going to happen to other family members, and loved ones who are in the middle of the [immigration] process…like cousins, aunts, uncles, even sisters, and brothers.”

Schneck said the meeting would be private.

Another local college leader, Ken Gormley, the President of Duquesne University, said in a statement in part “we support a reasonable approach to immigration that is not based upon fear, or hate, does not discriminate, and does not cause harm to individuals, families, or employers.”
