Carlos Spector, a leading immigration attorney specializing in Mexican political asylum cases, will discuss the causes of violence in Mexico as well as the U.S. government’s rationale for denying Mexican asylum claims. Spector will be joined by 32-year old Juan Fraire Escobedo, son of Marisela Escobedo, a human-rights activist who was murdered in Mexico while advocating for judicial reform. Escobedo, who has applied for political asylum in the United States, will discuss his family’s continuing fight for justice and what can be done to end the political repression and violence in his country.
