Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) March 18, 2010
“If you’ve ever dealt with the government, you know there’s one thing they don’t lack: an overabundance of red tape,” says Nikki Mehrpoo Jacobson, an immigration attorney and Chair of the Immigration Law Committee at the Beverly Hills Bar Association, who will be one of the lawyers lobbying Congress for immigration reform at the National American Immigration Lawyers Association event in Washington, DC this March.
The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) is holding a national “Day of Action” on March 25, 2010 to highlight the need for immigration reform in the United States. Immigration Lawyer Nikki Mehrpoo Jacobson and other immigration attorneys hope to spend the day educating government officials about the practical challenges presented by current immigration regulations and the need for a streamlined and more efficient system.
Through AILA’s “Day of Action,” it is hoped that government officials will seriously reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of immigration law and will examine the areas in which immigration reform would be beneficial. When asked about the importance of this event, Nikki Mehrpoo Jacobson, Esq., stated, “This day is an important day not just for politicians, but for all Americans. As one of the experienced immigration lawyers lobbying Congress, my goal is to let our elected officials understand how their legislation negatively affects, not only hardworking immigrants, but also U.S. Citizens.” Mehrpoo Jacobson also stressed that immigration reform could even save American families money by reducing the number of bureaucratic hoops they are forced to jump though again and again, from lost paperwork to an unnecessarily long waiting period.
The AILA National Day of Action will begin on March 25, 2010 with registration from 7:00-9:15 am at the Marriott Metro Center Hotel in Washington, D.C. From 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, there will be opportunities for conference attendees to interact with elected Congressional officials and Congressional staff. The closing reception will begin at 6:00 pm and will end at 8:00 pm at the National AILA Office on 1331 G Street NW in Washington, DC.
