Ashley’s passion for immigration work stems from her experiences growing up in a Colombian immigrant family in Queens, New York. Prior to law school, Ashley worked as an immigration legal advocate at the Urban Justice Center’s Domestic Violence Project. During law school, she interned with Make The Road NY and Brooklyn Defender Services. She was a clinical student at CUNY Law’s Immigrant and Non-Citizen Rights Clinic. Ashley is excited to join The Bronx Defenders’ Immigration practice as an IJC Fellow, where she will work at the intersection of immigration, criminal, civil, and family law.
