The "How Does an Immigration Lawyer Work?" Edition

This season on Working, we're talking to people employed in fields potentially imperiled by the results of the recent U.S. Presidential election.

Nithya Nathan-Pineau is Program Director of CAIR Coalition's Detained Children's Program. She spoke with Jacob Brogan about helping children understand their legal situation, and her work helping making arguments that kids facing deportation deserve asylum under American law.

In a Slate Plus Extra, Nathan-Pineau discusses her program's relationship with the Office of Refugee Resettlement, and how that might change under the new presidential administration.
