Question Corner (March 2018)


Question

My client is the mother of an adult United States citizen daughter who is on active duty in the military. Last year, my client successfully applied for parole in place, and her status will expire on Oct. 8, 2018. My client won’t be able to become a permanent resident though because she made a false claim to citizenship on an I-9 form in 2015. Will my client be eligible to renew her parole?

Building a Latino-Muslim coalition

Since 2016, Rida Hamida and Ben Vasquez channeled their passion for immigrant rights with a series of intersectional advocacy events. From “Adventures in Al-Andalus” to #IStandWithHijabis, they are on a mission to highlight the commonality between Latinos and Muslims. Check out their newest venture, #TacoTrucksAtEveryMosque, which is a direct response to comments from the founder for Latinos for Trump.
