IDEAS FOR THE MAYOR-ELECT

 Event Highlights: 

"When an immigrant is inadequately represented, their odds of prevailing are just 3% -- when they have access to competent representation, their odds of prevailing increase by 1,000%" 


- Angela Fernandez, Executive Director, Northern Manhattan Coalition for Immigrant Rights

 

"NYC had an immigration representation crisis -- a vast number of immigrants with valid legal claims were held back because they could not afford a competent lawyer." 


- Peter L. Markowitz, Professor & Director of the Immigration Justice Clinic,
Cardozo School of Law
