    The Minnesota Hispanic Bar Association will conduct its monthly board meeting at Arthur Chapman law firm in downtown Minneapolis on Tuesday September 6, 2016.  

  • 30 Jun 2016 10:35 AM | Bryan Browning (Administrator)

    On June 24, 2016, the Supreme Court issued a split 4-4 decision in U.S. v. Texas. The stalemate has the effect of permitting the continuing invalidation of President Obama’s executive order allowing parents of immigrant children to remain within the United States. The decision leaves the nation with an incomprehensive immigration policy. The Minnesota Hispanic Bar Association is strongly critical of a disjointed immigration system that continues to disproportionately impact Latinos within the United States.  

    The MHBA, as an advocate for Latino legal professionals within the state of Minnesota and as members of the greater Latino community, vehemently opposes immigration policies and rulings that leave families fragmented, and our nation without appropriate immigration reform.   

    The lack of immigration crisis relief within this country is a humanitarian catastrophe, and one for which the nation will continue to be judged by its citizens. Accordingly, the MHBA calls for the United States Senate to hold immediate confirmation proceedings for Chief Judge Merrick Garland in order to equip the Supreme Court of the United States with the resources necessary to carry outs its Constitutional duties. The MHBA supports comprehensive immigration reform and will be vocal about our nation’s shortcomings in this arena until it is achieved.
