Professor Fatma Marouf Testifies at Ad Hoc Congressional Hearing on Immigration

Fatma Marouf is the Co-Director of the Immigration Clinic and an Associate Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On March 17, Professor Marouf testified at an ad hoc congressional hearing on immigration chaired by Congressman Steven Horsford about the detention conditions and attorney access problems at the Henderson Detention Center, amplifying findings of a report released by the Boyd School of Law's Immigration Clinic last November.

The hearing was covered by the Las Vegas Sun. Professor Marouf is featured in the article Horsford calls for executive action to halt deportations.

Drawing on her extensive experience representing individuals before the Immigration Courts, Board of Immigration Appeals, and U.S. Courts of Appeals, Professor Marouf's research probes various problems involved in adjudicating immigration cases at all levels.
