Human Rights Advocacy for Family Unity in Immigration Law

On October 28, 2013, the Immigrants’ Rights Clinic argued before the Inter-American Human Rights Clinic that current immigration prosecutorial discretion policies violate international human rights standards. Students Atenas Burrola and David Watnick prepared a supplemental briefing and presented the case to the Commission. Students Neha Gupta, Katherine Wies, and Katharine Zhao drafted the Clinic’s primary submission to the Commission. The Clinic worked in collaboration with and on behalf of the Center for Justice and International Law. The presentation to the Commission was a collaborative effort with a broad coalition of organizations, many of which submitted reports  to the Commission.
