Moral Monday: Renown immigration attorney Elliott Ozment announced a delayed “Moral Monday” march this week- delayed to a later weekday due to the eclipse. This week’s march will protest action by State Attorney General Herbert Slattery to participate with nine other state attorneys general in asking the U.S. Department of Justice to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Certain illegal immigrants who entered the country as minors have a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit under DACA. Nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as children have already benefitted from DACA. (Moral Mondays refers to left-leaning protest rallies inside the state Capitol on Mondays.
Ozment recently invited Nashville’s L-Clubbers to tour his stellar museum of patriotic memorabilia. He has created the museum as a gift to his clients who visit his office at 1214 Murfreesboro Pike in Nashville.
Near the door is a display on Albert Einstein, perhaps the most famous immigrant to America, who arrived on these shores in 1933. “Einstein is what happens when we let people into the country,” Ozment said.
Ozment left a lucrative corporate law practice to practice immigration law to help people with little money who need a lot of help on how to stay in America, how to change their immigration status or how to protect their kids.
