HBA-DC's Legislative and Policy Issues Committee submitted a letter to Chairman Leahy and Ranking Member Grassley in support of an amendment, known as Coons 10, to S.744, the comprehensive immigration reform bill currently in the Senate. The amendment guarantees that those with Registered Provisional Immigrant status have the right to work in fields of employment that require licenses, such as the ability to practice law. The amendment supports the principle that immigration status by itself should not bar attorneys, or those in any licensed field, from practicing their profession. HBA-DC appreciates the work in this effort of members Adam Fernandez, Eissa Villasenor, Ruben Reyna, and Maria Mendoza.
