King Hall Immigration Law Clinic, UC Immigrant Legal Services Center Honored by California Senate
The UC Davis School of Law Immigration Law Clinic and the UC Immigrant Legal Services Center were presented with resolutions from the California Legislature honoring their contributions to the state and its immigrant population.
California Senator Bill Dodd presented the resolutions on April 20 to a King Hall contingent including Amagda Pérez '91 and Holly Cooper '98, Co-directors of the Immigration Law Clinic; Rachel Ray '11, Managing Attorney at the UC Immigrant Legal Services Center; David Gomez '15, Attorney Fellow at the UC Immigrant Legal Services Center; and Dean Kevin R. Johnson.
“In today’s political climate, many immigrants are afraid about how the next executive order or piece of legislation could turn their lives upside down,” said Senator Dodd. “Organizations like the Immigration Law Clinic and the UC Immigrant Legal Services Center provide immigrants with the resources they need to ensure they know their rights. I am honored to represent UC Davis as their Senator and commend the outstanding work done by these organizations.”
“With their work in our immigrant communities, the Immigration Law Clinic and UC Immigrant Legal Services Center have changed countless lives and helped make California a better place for all of us,” said Dean Johnson. “I want to join Senator Dodd and his colleagues in the Legislature in expressing my thanks and admiration for all that they do, and to thank Senator Dodd and the Legislature for honoring that important work.”
