Fatma Marouf, Co-Director of the Immigration Clinic and Associate Professor of Law, has been quoted in much of the coverage.

"In some cases, people didn't understand what they were signing. They were pressured to sign or rushed through signing forms. So, that type of either verbal or physical coercion in signing, to me, was one of the worst offenses," she said in the 8 News Now article.

The Immigration Clinic is part of the Thomas & Mack Legal Clinic at the William S. Boyd School of Law.
