With more than 30 years of experience in representing and advising multinational companies on immigration law, Charles C. Foster has long been recognized as a national expert in this area of legal practice.

Foster, who also is a member of St. Paul’s, will speak on the topic, specifically “Immigation Reform: Dead or Alive” at the August 13 Prime-timers meeting. Gather in Fondren Hall at 10:30 a.m. to socialize prior to the 11 a.m. program. An $8 lunch will be served to those who RSVP by August 11 to info@stpaulshouston.org or 713-528-0527.

He has served as a senior policy advisor to both presidents Bush and Obama during their presidential campaigns and has testified often before both U.S. House and Senate subcommittees on immigration. Many may recognize Foster as the attorney who represented Houston Ballet artist Li Cunxin in his immigration struggles with the People's Republic of China.

Foster currently leads the Greater Houston Partnership Task Force on Immigration Reform, a nationwide effort to secure sensible immigration reform legislation that meets the needs of the busines community, families, and the U.S. economy. 

He is the founding Chair of the State Bar of Texas Immigration and Nationality Law Section and is involved in numerous civic organizations, including Interfaith Ministries of Greater Houston. 

Primetimers is the name of the activity-based group for St. Paul's seniors, but one need not be of a certain age or affiliated with St. Paul's to attend the meetings.
