An old man was walking on the beach one morning after a strom. In the distance, he could see someone moving like a dancer.
As he came closer, he saw that it was a young woman picking up a starfish and gently throwing them into the ocean.
“Young lade, why are you throwing a starfish into the ocean?”
“The sun is up, and the tide is going out, and if I do not throw them in they will die”, she said.
“But young lady, do yo not realize that there are many miles of beach and thousands of starfish? You cannot possibly make a difference.”
The young woman listened politely, then bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the sea.
“It made a difference for that one.”
Austin Bar Training
Under the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), also known as “Remain-in-Mexico,” thousands of asylum seekers find themselves waiting in Mexico throughout their U.S. immigration court process. Current statistics show that less than 2% of these asylum seekers are represented, and those that do not have counsel are five times more likely to have their asylum claim denied. This CLE focuses on representing asylum seekers subject to MPP pro bono. Upon completion of the CLE, you will be offered the opportunity to get involved, along with additional training and mentorship to guide you along the way.
