Margo Cowan '85 was quoted in an Arizona Daily Star article discussing a political asylee from Togo who was sentenced to 22 years in prison Monday for causing the death of his ex wife’s 6-year-old son. While the U.S. often deports immigrants convicted of crimes prior to their sentences being completed, Togo and the U.S. do not have an extradition agreement so it’s unclear what will happen to him, said his attorney, Margo Cowan.

Margo Cowan is a Pima County (AZ) public defender and champion of migrant rights for 25 years.  She is also a Sanctuary leader, board member of Derechos Humanos, and co-founder of the group No More Deaths.
