About the training:
This two-day immigration law training course will be presented by Attorneys Mary Holper and Peggy Gleason. Mary Holper is the supervising attorney for Boston College Immigration and Asylum Project. She formerly worked as a detention attorney for Clinic and is the author and frequent public speaker on crimes and immigration. Peggy Gleason is an attorney with CLINIC and Catholic Charities in Washington, D.C. who also practices in the area of immigration law and crimes. The course will cover crime-based inadmissibility and deportability, waivers, representation strategies, and practice pointers for representing an immigrant with a conviction or a pending criminal charge. The impact of domestic violence and DUIs, as well as aggravated felonies and crimes of moral turpitude will be explained. Trainers will present an overview of removal proceedings and rights in removal, and relief from removal for clients with crime issues. Trainers will explain possible remedies for ICE misconduct in arrests and searches such as motions to suppress. Trainers will also discuss strategies for responding to ICE raids and criminal charges that may arise from them.
