Rodney Youman and H. Raymond Fasano meet with artist who will be commissioned to dedicate a painting to the plight of the American immigrant.

The Statue of Liberty is universally known as representing the hopes and dreams of every immigrant coming to America. While the Statue of Liberty is iconic as an American treasure it may not accurately capture the plight of today's immigrant who faces draconian visa delays, mandatory detention if the individual is an arriving alien, cruel and inhumane unlawful presence penalties and work exploitation just to name a few examples.

DAPA is not dead. It just going to take longer to implement.

There is much speculation that Deferred Action for Parental Accountability, DAPA, is dead. However, this is not the case. As noted by the 5th Circuit, DAPA "would provide legal presence for illegal immigrants who were parents of citizens or lawful permanent residents. The United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Andrew S. Hanen, J., 2015 WL 648579, granted a preliminary injunction in favor of the States who brought an action under the Administrative Procedure Act to put a halt on DAPA until it was subject to comment by the States.

H. Raymond Fasano presents panel on crimes of violence with national criminal immigration law expert Dan Kesselbrenner from the Immigrant Defense Project and National Immigration Project on May 15, 2015 for Federal Bar Association in Memphis, TN.
