Professor Denise Gilman of introduces her students at the University of Texas Law School Immigration Clinic to immigrants who have lived and worked in the United States for many years and have formed families here, often including U.S. citizen spouses and children. For many of these individuals, there is no path to regularize their status in the United States under current law. Instead, they live in fear that their families will be ripped apart through detention and deportation, which impacts their ability to meet their full potential as productive contributors to society. Read Professor Gilman's op/ed on what the Texas border does not need.
