ASISTA, along with Asian Pacific Institute On Gender-Based Violence, Casa De Esperanza, Freedom Network USA, Futures Without Violence, National Alliance To End Sexual Violence, National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Sanctuary For Families, Tahirih Justice Center, and Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence, submitted an amicus brief in the Attorney General certification of Matter of L-A-B-R- regarding the need for continuances in immigration court and that curtailing the ability of judges to grant continuances undermines the protections in VAWA.   We are grateful to and for the tremendous efforts of Jeanne Barenholtz and Kara Steger at Garvey Schubert and Barer, P.C. for their pro bono representation in this effort.
