Last week, I had the opportunity to attend the 19th Annual Immigration Law Conference hosted by the Federal Bar Association for the first time. This year's conference took place in New Orleans, Louisiana. Upon my arrival at the conference, which was held at the New Orleans Marriott, I immediately noticed the feeling of collective interest among the participants, all of whom were eager to share and contribute knowledge in the field of immigration law. Top practitioners from all over the country participated in the various events, including members of the private bar, distinguished judges and government employees from different agencies such as the U.S. Department of State, the Department of Justice, and the Department of Homeland Security, speaking candidly about key issues relating to their areas of expertise.
I had the distinction and honor of presenting a panel entitled Cancellation of Removal: permanent resident and non-permanent resident at the 19th Annual Federal Bar Association Immigration Law Conference. My fellow panelists included Hon. Denise Slavin, EOIR Immigration Judge Baltimore, MD, Charlotte Marquez Assistant Chief Counsel, DHS New Orleans, LA and private attorney Rosie Milano. Ms. Milano did a masterful job moderating this panel.
