This story in the ABA Journal looks at some of the amazing work of our Margaret Stock on behalf of immigrants in the military.   The article reports that Stock "believes this is a dishonorable period in American history, like the World War II-era discrimination against Japanese-Americans. As then, she says, she thinks it’s fueled by fear. . . .  `I think that’s what’s going on at the Pentagon right now, they are terrified of foreigners, and so they’re doing things that actually hurt our nation’s military,' she says. `And I think we’ll overcome that eventually. We’ll have to. If we don’t, we’re not going to be a superpower anymore.'”
