Cruz publishes article in 'Fordham Urban Law Journal'

April 28, 2011

Evelyn Cruz, law professor, published an article in the Fordham Urban Law Journal entitled, “Because You’re Mine I Walk the Line: The Trials and Tribulations of the Family Visa Program.”

Cruz explores the difficulties families face when dealing with mixed immigration statuses as the backlog of family visa cases can make reunification a long, strenuous process. Therefore, she argues that family members that have pending visa applications be allowed to legally live in the U.S.

Cruz teaches Immigration Law and Comprehensive Law Practice, and directs the College’s Immigration Law & Policy Clinic, which represents unaccompanied minors in immigration removal proceedings and received the 2007 President’s Medal for Social Embeddedness at ASU.
