Immigrants Coming to America

Immigrants Coming to America

Jo Condrill stacked the deck with iImmigration professors, an International Affairs Consultant, and 12 immigrants for her new book, Immigrants Coming to America.
This Kindle Best-Selling Author interviewed U.S.immigrants from all over the world: Mexico, Sri Lanka, Syria, Georgia, Pakistan, Norway, Germany, and Vietnam. Each tells a dramatic real-life story of Coming to America. One of the immigrants is undocumented. Another immigrant was granted asylum. He came to the U.S. on business and while he was away his business was taken over by the government. He faced imprisonment if he returned. Another one of the immigrants was a refugee whose escape boat was attacked by pirates.

The Foreword to the book was written by Paul E. White, a career Foreign Affairs expert who is today an International Affairs Consultant. Over a 40 year Foreign Service career, Mr. White served in increasingly senior positions overseas in the U.S. Agency for International Development and in U.S. Embassies in Asia and Latin America. Major responsibilities in his early career included: refugee relief and rehabilitation. At mid-career he served as a General Development Officer overseeing education, training, health, population, nutrition, environment and energy portfolios. In his late career, he formed major alliances for Third World nations, bringing in and/or creating innovative small businesses and nongovernmental groups as partners with more traditional development providers. He led U.S. – Japan and U.S. -Mexico common agenda alliances as Minister Counselor and foreign economic assistance director at the U.S. Embassies in Tokyo and Mexico.

To better explore today’s immigration issues, Jo Condrill interviewed two esteemed immigration law professors, Lee J. Terán, J.D. and Erica B. Schommer, J.D. Professor Terán is a clinical professor of law at St. Mary’s University School of Law and directs the Immigration and Human Rights clinic. She is a 1975 graduate of the University of Colorado School of Law. She has been licensed to practice in Texas since 1976, and since 1984 has been board certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in the area of immigration and nationality law. She has litigated a number of civil rights cases concerning immigrants and refugees and was formerly a co-director of the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project. She has written and frequently lectures on issues relating to nationality, immigrant victims of violence, and the immigration consequences of crime.
Erica B. Schommer is licensed by the State Bar of Texas and is admitted to practice before the Fifth and Ninth Circuit Courts of Appeals. Before joining the St. Mary’s Law faculty, she was in private practice in Tacoma, Washington. From 2003 to 2010 she practiced immigration law on the U.S.A./Mexico border with Texas RioGrande Legal Aid, Inc. (TRLA) where she was the managing attorney for TRLA’s anti-human trafficking team and the director of the Legal Orientation Program at the Willacy Detention Center in Raymondville, Texas.
