Event description

Description

Amnesty International, The Council on American Islamic Relations, the Chicago Religious Leaderrship Network on Latin America and Refugee One is pleased to invite you to a program with noted immigration attorney Marty Rosenbluth, who will be speaking about his work helping undocumented migrants and asylum seekers in detention. Marty relocated to Lumpkin, Georgia to be near his clients at the Stewart Detention Facility, a private for-profit facility that has been criticized for its poor conditions, resulting in several detainee deaths. There are now more than 56,000 people in immigration detention in the US, many held in inhumane conditions and without legal help. Marty and other dedicated attorneys like him provide a desperately needed service to this population in need. Marty’s extraordinary work and dedication has been showcased in a number of recent articles in prominent publications including The Guardian and the Christian Science Monitor and he wrote a recent op-ed in the Washington Post. The program will be moderated by Loyola University Chicago School of Law Professor Katherine Walts.
