Law News: MBA Supports Metro Public Defender Immigrant Protection Project

In light of recent immigration reforms, the Multnomah Bar Association is working with the Metro Public Defender Immigrant Protection Project to help provide legal support to immigrants in the Portland area. With anti-immigrant sentiment on the rise from our executive branch, legal professionals and concerned citizens are stepping up to help facilitate the protection for immigrants that is provided through our country’s legal system. Although it is widely agreed that our country’s judicial system is not without its flaws, the support for this program has been immense. From┬álegal firms to court reporting agencies, many have stepped up to provide emergency services for those who risk deportation simply because of their lack of knowledge regarding the nuances of the United States legal system. It will not be surprising if Portland court reporters soon follow suit.
