While attending The University of Florida Levin College of Law, Jasmine interned with the Florida Rural Legal Services’ Migrant Farmworker Unit and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in Atlanta. Additionally, she volunteered with CARA’s Family Detention Pro Bono Project and SPLC’s Southeast Immigrant Freedom Initiative (SIFI) where she provided legal services to detained immigrants. Jasmine is excited for the opportunity to fulfill her passion for immigrants’ rights by joining the IJC in expanding access to quality legal services to all immigrants. She works with Catholic Legal Services of Miami where she provides a full range of immigration-related legal services, from initial advice and assistance to full representation, to detained immigrants at the Broward Transitional Center.  Jasmine primarily represents asylum-seekers, unaccompanied minor children, and immigrant survivors of domestic violence.
