Claudia Cragg (@KGNUClaudia) speaks here with JJ Mulligan Sepulveda. He is the son of proud mother @emmanvch.
Sepulveda is an immigration lawyer working at the Immigration Law Clinic at the University of California Davis School of Law. He is a former Immigrant Justice Corps fellow and Fulbright Scholar. This is his first book.
For the second anniversary of President Trump’s Muslim Ban, which banned individuals from seven Muslim countries from entering the US—regardless of legal status. Immigration attorney J.J. Mulligan Sepúlveda was among the many fearless lawyers who rallied together and offered services to those being detained, and their families eagerly awaiting their entry. His new book, NO HUMAN IS ILLEGAL: An Attorney on the Frontlines of the Immigration War (Melville House Publishing) pulls back the curtain on the inhumane legal world of immigration reform that is currently coming to fruition in the US. He offers an inside look at how the United States controls and handles immigration in our country.
Alternating between memoirist accounts of his own beginnings as an immigration lawyer, and enlightening commentary on the backchannels and bureaucracy of immigration reform, NO HUMAN IS ILLEGAL offers new insight and fascinating history to one of our country’s most important issues.
