Trump’s shutdown stops immigration courts from functioning

In the story linked-below, DMCA partner Lance Curtright, discusses a special case about a woman who is particularly affected by the shutdown.

From the story:

“‘Her husband is dying,’ immigration attorney Lance Curtright said. ‘And part of the reason we think she can get her green card in the United States requires her husband to be alive.’

Campos’s attorney, Curtright said she’s in a race against time.

‘That’s why we are trying desperately to get her case in front of a judge,’ Curtright said. ‘The problem is, the court isn’t open for business because they are not funded.’

A painful waiting game for Campos as she and her attorney hope the shutdown ends quickly.”
