Jewish Exponent Write-Up of Cardozo Fellow

An excerpt:

"[Rona's] Cardozo Law Institute for Human Rights Fellowship is getting underway as the debate over immigration policy heats up in the wake of President Barack Obama’s executive order last week to provide benefits to some 5 million of the estimated 12 million undocumented immigrants in the country.

Gershon called Obama’s plan “good news” for immigrants in general.

She said she hopes to contribute to the national debate on immigration through speaking engagements and other efforts to help HIAS bring attention to the plight of immigrants who “have been here for 20 years paying taxes and working and contributing to our society.”
