During the American Bar Association Annual Meeting in New York City, the ABA House adopted policies urging Congress to add courthouses to the “sensitive locations” list for immigration enforcement and licensing groups to admit to the bar undocumented law school graduates under certain circumstances. Resolution 108, proposed by the ABA Law Student Division and backed by the ABA YLD, recommended that undocumented law grads be admitted to the bar if they are “seeking legal status.” Resolution 10C urges Congress to add courthouses to the list of “sensitive locations,” which currently include places like schools, healthcare facilities and places of worship, as off-limits to immigration enforcement agents.
