KPBS News Story about our Client Ayded Reyes: Winning Proescutorial Discretion

Great News story about our client Ayded Reyes, Attorney Jacob Sapochnick is also interviewed. Reyes was allowed to stay here under a policy announced by the Obama administration last year dubbed “prosecutorial discretion.” It directs immigration officials to focus on prosecuting and deporting serious criminals and those who have repeatedly violated immigration law.

People like Reyes — who have strong ties to the community, or who have been living in the U.S. since they were young children — will have their deportation cases reviewed, and possibly closed.

Some analysts say the prosecutorial discretion policy is one of several ways the Obama administration is trying to work around Congress on thorny immigration issues.
