Why Courts Matter: Courts and Immigration


By Nancy Cohen

Do you realize how important a fully functioning federal court system equipped to safeguard the rights of all Americans is to you?  The League, along with its co-sponsors, has again received mini-grants from Progress Florida Education Institute (PFEI) to educate and raise awareness on the impact of federal courts on important issues.

We start with a burning issue: Immigration.

Jacqueline Delgado, daughter of Cuban immigrants and an active immigration lawyer, will speak about The Role of the Courts in Immigration.  Learn how the courts and federal court decisions have affected the trajectory of this important issue and how tax and economic policy affect immigration policy. Read an interesting article on the subject of Immigration and America.
