Professor Fatma Marouf Quoted in Las Vegas Sun

Fatma Marouf is the co-director of the Immigration Clinic and an associate professor at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

Professor Marouf was quoted in the Jan. 15 Las Vegas Sun article, "Study: Nearly half of Clark County’s unauthorized immigrants qualify for deportation relief."

In regard to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents program, Professor Marouf said, "There might be people with convictions who are eligible but unsure, or people who can’t afford the $500 fee. There tends to be a lot of confusion about these programs, and there is still a lot of fear."

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.
