A Day In the Life of a JFS Immigration Attorney

Ever since he was 11 years old, Luis waned to be an attorney. Now he’s doing just that. In fall of 2018, he joined the JFS team as an immigration attorney who assists asylum-seeking families at the U.S-Mexico border. Thank you to our partner organization HIAS for capturing a day-in-the-life of Luis. This video is an incredible snapshot of the work we do every day to protect the rights of immigrant families.
