New! Updated Quick Reference Chart for Determining Immigration Consequences of Selected Arizona Offenses
The Florence Project is excited to announce that former Florence Project Staff Attorney, Katharine Ruhl (now in private practice), has completed a substantial update of the quick reference chart for Arizona offenses, with assistance from Tracy Abastillas (Office of the Public Defender, Maricopa County), Kara Hartzler (former Florence Project Legal Director, currently with the Federal Defender’s of San Diego Inc.), Michael Neufeld (private practice), Laura St. John (Florence Project Legal Director), and Margarita Silva (Florence Project Board Member and in private practice). This 2016 update was made possible with the support of the Arizona Public Defender Association, Arizona Attorneys for Criminal Justice, and the generous private donations of AILA members.
The Chart began with the impressive efforts of Ryan Moore, now with the Federal Defender’s Office of Arizona, when he was a law student at the University of Arizona. Since that time Katherine Brady and Angie Junck of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (San Francisco); Holly Cooper of the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project (Florence Project), now teaching at the University of California Davis School of Law (Davis, CA); and Beth Houck of Maricopa County Office of the Public Defender (Phoenix) have been the primary authors. In 2008, 2010, and 2012, Kara Hartzler of the Arizona Defending Immigrants Partnership revised and expanded the Chart.
