But it wasn’t without drama. Democrats boycotted the hearing, hoping to stall the process by withholding a quorum. The panel’s rules dictate that at least two members of the minority – in this case Democrats – needed to be present to approve her nomination, but Republicans cast aside the effort and voted without them.

Take Action Now: Tell the Government Not to Obstruct Court Hearings for Asylum Seekers

The Department of Justice (DOJ) Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) proposed a new regulation which, if implemented, will drastically limit the ability of individuals to obtain asylum and withholding of removal in the United States. The regulation was published in the Federal Register on September 23. The public has 30 days – until October 23 – to comment on the proposed rule.

Children From Immigrant Families Are Increasingly the Face of Higher Education

"U.S.-born children of immigrants or immigrant students raised in the United States accounted for nearly 60 percent of the growth in university enrollment since 2000."

Federal Court Temporarily Halts Immigration Fee Hike

READ: "A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) from increasing fees for green card and U.S. citizenship applications, just days before the new fees were scheduled to take effect."

Why was the rule blocked?

“Plaintiffs persuasively argue that the public interest would be served by enjoining or staying the effective date of the Final Rule because if it takes effect, it will prevent vulnerable and low-income applicants from applying for immigration benefits, will block access to humanitarian protections, and will expose those populations to further danger.”

HAPPY 8TH ANNIVERSARY AT TLO!
(tambien version en espanol abajo)

"18 years ago, I too came to the US as an immigrant from Peru with huge hopes and dreams. My mother worked for a top law firm in Peru for many years and I always admired her work. She inspired me to work in the legal field.

My name is Monica Castillo and I have been a Paralegal at Thoronka Law Offices for the past 8 years. I have enjoyed every moment of helping our clients get their green cards and become US citizens. I am grateful to Thoronka Law Offices for giving me the opportunity to serve my community and the people of Northern Virginia.

Through my work, many people have found hope and achieved success. I look forward to many more years of successfully serving my community.
As I celebrate my anniversary, I want to send a shout out to my entire family for all their support. Love you guys!
Happy Friday everyone!

PS: Do you like my TLO t-shirt?" 😊


"Mi nombre es Monica Castillo. Soy asistente legal en Thoronka Law Offices durante los últimos 8 años. Disfruto cada momento ayudando a nuestros clientes a obtener sus tarjetas de residencia y convertirse en ciudadanos estadounidenses. Agradezco a Thoronka Law Offices por darme la oportunidad de estar al servicio de la comunidad del norte de Virginia.

Hace dieciocho años, yo también vine a los Estados Unidos como inmigrante de Perú y tenía grandes esperanzas y sueños cuando vine. Mi madre había trabajado para un bufete de abogados de primer nivel en Perú durante muchos años. Siempre admiré su trabajo. Ella me inspiró a trabajar también en el campo legal.
A través de mi trabajo, muchas personas han encontrado esperanza y éxito. Espero tener muchos años más sirviendo con éxito a nuestros clientes.

Al celebrar mi aniversario, quiero agradecer a mi familia por todo su apoyo. ¡Los quiero!
¡Feliz Viernes a todos!

PD: ¿Les gusta mi camiseta de TLO? 😊"
