AILA Texas-Oklahoma-New Mexico “Pro Bono” Champion

On Friday, April 15, colleagues in the American Immigration Lawyers Association honored me with the AILA Chapter Pro Bono Champion award for 2016.  Our chapter — Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico — is the belly of the beast.  Frankly, given how many outstanding advocates devote their time & considerable expertise to assisting refugees and immigrants, and ESPECIALLY because these are among the people I call for help and answers, I’m both stunned and humbled by the recognition.  Of course, I am also extremely grateful.  Kate Lincoln-Goldfinch presented me with the award and a compliment I appreciate: I’m “a loud mouth” for justice for immigrants.   Takes one to know one, Kate, and I’m so happy to be in this company!
