Emily’s work before law school at the ACLU of New Mexico and the Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLINIC) introduced her to the many sides of immigration advocacy. At law school, she spent two years in the Immigration and Human Rights Clinic representing families in their asylum cases. She also gained experience working on T and U visas and removal defense as an intern with the Urban Justice Center, CARECEN DC, and CAIR Coalition. As an IJC fellow with the Dilley Project at Texas Rio Grande Legal Aid, Emily will advocate on behalf of detained immigrant families.
