Derivative Citizenship Victory for UC Davis Immigration and Civil Rights Clinics!

The UC Davis Immigration and Civil Rights Clinics win big! After a lengthy trial in the Northen District of California before Judge William Alsup, the court ruled that Herbert Flores-Torres, who is currently detained and presumably will soon be released, in fact is a U.S. citizen. The court determined that Flores-Torres became and remains a U.S. citizen upon the naturalization of his mother in 1995. See Flores-Torres v. Holder, No. 09-CV-3569-WHA, N.D. Cal. (Dec. 23, 2009).
