CLINIC Executive Director on Mayorkas Nomination

SILVER SPRING, Maryland — Anna Gallagher, executive director at the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. said:

“As an immigrant with serious management and policy-making experience, Alejandro Mayorkas is an excellent choice to lead the Department of Homeland Security. Having directed U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and served as Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security in the Obama administration, Mayorkas understands the complexities of U.S. immigration law. His respect for the dignity and rights of immigrants is real. The job here is not only to undo the destruction of the previous administration, but to lead us forward in building a humane, just, and dignified immigration system. CLINIC looks forward to working with Mayorkas and his team to make this a reality.”
