We are very honored to announce that my guest tomorrow on June 28th at 10am PST on “Immigration with Tahmina” on Desi 1250am radio will be Ben Johnson, Executive Director of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA)!
The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) is the national association of more than 14,000 attorneys and law professors who practice and teach immigration law. AILA member attorneys represent U.S. families seeking permanent residence for close family members, as well as U.S. businesses seeking talent from the global marketplace. AILA members also represent foreign students, entertainers, athletes, and asylum seekers, often on a pro bono basis. Founded in 1946, AILA is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization that provides continuing legal education, information, professional services, and expertise through its 39 chapters and over 50 national committees.
Ben Johnson was named Executive Director of AILA in January 2016. Prior to that, he was the Director of the American Immigration Council from June 2007 and before that, he was Director of the Council’s Immigration Policy Center from February 2003. Ben has written extensively on immigration law and policy, and has appeared on National Public Radio, Fox News, BBC World News, and other television and radio programs. In 1994, he co-founded and served as the Director of the Immigration Outreach Center in Phoenix, Arizona. In 1999, he joined the staff of the American Immigration Lawyers Association as Associate Director of Advocacy, where he worked with Congress, the Administration, and federal agencies on a wide variety of immigration-related issues. Prior to his work on immigration issues, he worked as a criminal and civil trial attorney in San Diego, California. Ben is a graduate of the University of San Diego School of Law and studied international and comparative law at Kings College in London.
