Happy New Year’s readers! In my last blog I talked about my New Year’s plan to volunteer on a week-long assignment in an immigrant detention center near the Texas-Mexico border. I was to help asylum seekers advance their claims. Not really in my wheelhouse, since I am a New York personal injury lawyer. But I speak Spanish, and am married to a Guatemalan, and wanted to help out with all the Central Americans claiming asylum on our border right now. I am writing now to report that my efforts were successful. Here is an article by a reporter at the Finger Lakes Times about my journey. Thanks for reading!
