Field Engagement


Senior Field Engagement Strategist

Guerrero joined CLINIC in November 2018 as an Advocacy Attorney working on policy and outreach.

In July of 2019, she helped design and initiate the Estamos Unidos Asylum Project based in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, which lasted until late 2021. As part of that project, Guerrero co-led CLINIC's efforts to provide pro se legal orientation to asylum seekers and migrants stranded at the southern border due to restrictive U.S. immigration policies, such as the Migrant Protection Protocols and Title 42. Now, Guerrero continues to focus her work on border issues and building capacity in the interior to welcome recent arrivals. 

Prior to joining CLINIC, she was in private practice. Her work focused on deportation defense litigation, affirmative and defensive asylum, family-based petitions, and humanitarian relief, including Special Immigrant Juvenile Status matters. Previously, Guerrero provided legal assistance to adults, unaccompanied minors and families fleeing violence from their home countries. She engaged in advocacy for immigrants’ rights in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. She also served as a criminal defense attorney to detained first-time offenders in Monterrey, Mexico.

Guerrero earned her law degree from the University of Monterrey and master’s degree in international law and human rights from the U.N.-mandated University for Peace. She is a member of the District of Columbia and Mexican bars. She is fluent in Spanish.
