Pima County (AZ) Public Defender Margo Cowan '85 was quoted in the Arizona Daily Star on President Obama's new policy of halting deportations and offering temporary work permits to some illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. before they were 16, lived here for at least five years and have clean records.  

"It's about time that our country stop the unjust deportation of deserving kids, kids that for all intents and purposes are American citizens but for the fact that they don't have the paper, and these are kids that will be leaders of tomorrow," said 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.
