I'm honored to be included with my much more deserving colleagues on The Washingtonian (magazine) "Best Immigration Lawyers" list. Had I known about the nomination, I would have put in votes for so...…
...many lawyers in the DMV who've tirelessly led the charge to protect due process for all aspiring Americans.

To whoever nominated me, thank you.
These are folks who head for the airports, the border, and to jails in the middle of nowhere at the drop of a hat to make sure the voiceless are given a voice. They know their clients better than some family members.

Today I was reminded why I'm running for office.

I got off the phone today with a judge who denied my client, headed for Virginia, the chance to apply for asylum.

His case was a slam dunk, especially after a nationwide injunction issued earlier today.
Without quoting a single case, despite our 7pg brief explaining the law, the judge denied the case. My client's tears and trembling voice did not move him, because "lots of people come here from El Salvador with stories like yours, but that doesn't qualify you for asylum."
Yes, it does.

When gang members come and kill off two of your brothers, one after another, then beat and rape two of your sisters, both of whom make it to the US and were allowed to apply for asylum, then you have a claim, too.
