Tino Cuellar/Stanford, Alexander Aleinikoff/Georgetown lead Obama's immigration transition team
Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.
Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.
If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.
Tyche Hendricks of the San Francisco Chronicle offers "Stanford professor leads Obama immigration team" (link), with the news that Tino Cuellar - law professor at Stanford University - has been named as one of the two co-leaders of Barack Obama's transition team dealing with immigration. In the article, he's praised by John Trasvina of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, which, in case you needed one, isn't a good sign. Cuelar also worked for two years on money-laundering causes at the Treasury Department during the Clinton administration. And, the American Bar Association apparently recently suggested him as one possibility to head the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
The other co-leader is Alexander Aleinikoff, dean of Georgetown University Law Center, who was Executive Associate Commissioner of Programs at the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) during the Clinton years. He's also associated with the Migration Policy Institute.
