Jason announced on Tuesday that his law firm HKM will challenge the Trump administration’s policy to force federal and state employees to separate children from their parents. HKM will provide pro-bono legal services to any immigration official or employee who objects to implementing this cruel and immoral policy.
Since Jason’s announcement, HKM has received hundreds of inquiries from attorneys, legal professionals, organizations, and volunteers around the country who have offered to join HKM’s pro-bono effort to challenge the Trump Administration’s illegal policy. Following Jason’s appearance on The Rachel Maddow Show Thursday night, where he discussed these efforts, dozens of intakes have poured in, and HKM is providing free legal services to anyone seeking representation or to understand their rights.
“This issue transcends politics because the Trump Administration’s policy violates basic American values. I’m proud to be running for Congress to stand up for what’s right and to challenge these types of immoral policies,” Jason said.
“What is clear is that this is an evolving crisis, family separation has not ended, and we need to continue to challenge the enforcement of this immoral policy on every front. That’s why in just the past few days we’ve built a network of hundreds of legal professionals from all around the country who are volunteering to help in this important effort,” said Jason.
