AILA Presents the Artesia Pro Bono Volunteers with the 2015 Michael Maggio Memorial Pro Bono Award

Special counsel Karen Grisez was awarded as an Artesia Pro Bono Volunteer with the 2015 Michael Maggio Memorial Pro Bono Award for outstanding efforts in providing pro bono representation in the immigration field by the American Immigration Lawyers Associate.  The award was accepted on behalf of all the volunteers by Christina Brown and Vanessa Sischo today during AILA's Annual Conference in National Harbor, MD.

The Artesia Pro Bono Project came to life in a remote detention facility in Artesia, New Mexico, when the federal government chose to set up a "deportation mill" and rush children and moms fleeing to the U.S. for safety through removal proceedings.
