Government paid lawyers and law students for ANIMALS 🐶🐱. How do you feel about this considering immigrants do NOT have free legal representation? For me, it’s not a question of whether animals should get free lawyers, it’s why human beings seeking freedom and prosperity in the US don’t. Also, where is this money coming from? It never ceases to amaze me that legislation increasingly fails to specify the source of funds for a bill. Do you allocate a family expense on your household budget without ensuring you have the income for it?? I believe in the humane and dignified treatment of animals, as my faith dictates such. However, let’s maintain fiscal integrity, responsibility for managing the tax payers money, and ensure HUMAN BEINGS are afforded equal treatment. 🙏🏼🙏🏼

Fake “crisis at the border” is what the President wants you to consume, so you support a 5 billion dollar Berlin Wall and allow him to usurp power delegated to the legislature. Hear my take on it with Brian Ross Investigates on Law & Crime . I appeared with former National Security Advisor for 5 US presidents Richard Clarke and Chief Border Patrol under Obama, Mark Morgan who spoke out for the first time.

Most knowledgeable, professional, responsive, and compassionate Immigration Lawyer
Posted by Mahmoud January 4, 2019
“Afia and I started our consultation a few years before filing my NIW case. She not only answered all my questions, but also walked me through every possible scenario and how to prepare for it. My case was by far one of the most complex as I work in a highly specialized scientific field. When it comes to knowledge about immigration matters, one would expect the immigration attorney to know the subject and all the intricacies really well. Afia has all that and much more. She truly impressed me with her knowledge, experience, and expertise with the toughest immigration cases, but she didn’t stop there. Afia went the extra 100 miles and spent a significant amount of time learning about my incredibly complex scientific areas of research in order to truly understand what it is that I do and break it down to someone who doesn’t have the technical background in order to easily demonstrate the impact and usefulness of the work. If this doesn’t show how much she cares about her clients, I don’t know what does. I am positive that no other attorney would be able or willing to invest this much time and effort to improve the chances of success.
Afia deeply cares about her clients and understands what they are going through. This reflects on her professional and responsive yet truly compassionate communication throughout the entire process. She was able to remain calm, collected, and full of hope through the toughest and most frustrating moments of RFEs and interviews. Even after the I-140 was accepted, Afia insisted on preparing additional documents and evidence to provide during the I-485 interview in case something unusual comes up and accompanied me to the interview without asking for anything, which ended up being immensely helpful.
Afia will gladly go above and beyond for her clients and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking immigration advice. I truly cannot thank her enough for everything she has done for me and all her clients. An EXCEPTIONAL lawyer and all-around wonderful individual. God bless...”

With a heavy heart, I admit this is the first time I’ve been so intimately connected to the brutal and devastating death of a loved one by gun violence. Brother Esa was family of my family and, therefore, my brother. He was my brother in Islam and brother to my sisters. May his killer be brought to justice and may his family find peace. May he raise to the ranks of prophets and may his death melt the ice off of the cold hearts of apathy to gun violence. #blacklivesmatter ... See MoreSee Less

ICE has provided reports regarding in-custody detainee deaths beginning in FY2018. According to a report by Human Rights Watch, the ACLU, the National Immigrant Justice Center, and Detention Watch Network, "More people died in immigration detention in fiscal year 2017 than any year since 2009" and immigration detainee deaths are "linked to dangerously inadequate medical care." ...
