As a daughter of immigrants and a critic of ineffective systems, Carla has committed herself to reforming an immigration system effectively designed to be dysfunctional. She has interned for organizations such as the CARA ProBono Project where she prepared asylum seekers for their credible fear interviews, and Brooklyn Defender Services where she worked on crimmigration cases for clients who could not afford an attorney. Carla is honored to continue this work through her host organization, CAIR Coalition, where she will work to support attorneys in removal defense and defensive asylum cases.
