As an immigration lawyer, I believe in due process. Access to counsel is the heart of it. Without lawyers, the immigration system becomes a deportation system.

Today I attended a press conference in San Diego with my friend @Alyssa_Milano and advocates at the @verainstitute.
Vera is announcing the #SafeFamiliesFund, a new fund to provide legal representation for immigrants facing deportation.

Deportation isn't guaranteed. The law allows many of these people the right to stay...if they get the right advice at the right time.

That's the law.
Criminals get lawyers.

Immigrants don't. While hat has to change, we can no longer be the country that deports people to their death, rips their family apart, and denies them a fair shot at telling their story.

Our compassion is our strength.
