Denyse SabaghDuane Morris LLP, in cooperation with Maggio + Kattar and Penn State Law's Center for Immigrants' Rights, recently released a toolkit for practitioners on two significant but lesser-known immigration remedies, private bills and deferred action. The toolkit, designed for use by immigration judges, lawyers, public officials, and nonprofit groups, is a guide to alternative forms of relief for immigrants facing deportation despite compelling circumstances. Washington, D.C.-based partner Denyse Sabagh, head of the firm's Immigration Practice Group and a co-author of the toolkit, briefly comments on the usefulness of and great need for such a toolkit within the immigration law community.
