Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

Immigration Lawyer Margaret Stock Awarded MacArthur Foundation Genius Grant

Rate this Entry
Margaret was one of the first immigration lawyers I met when I joined the American Immigration Lawyers Association more than two decades ago. We ran in to each other at a young lawyers event and I knew from our first meeting that she was no ordinary lawyer. Margaret today was named a MacArthur Fellow, one of the most prestigious honors an individual can get in any field. In fact, I learned about Margaret's news on NPR this morning.

Margaret is without doubt the country's foremost expert on immigration law and the country's military. She started AILA's Military Assistance Program (of which I'm a member) which provides pro bono immigration assistance to military families. Margaret also is the driving force behind the military's MAVNI program which is an immigration program designed to get doctors, nurses and other needed professionals in to the military. I remember talking to Margaret about her idea for MAVNI when she was just thinking about it and was really impressed by her tenacity in moving that project forward.

Margaret's winning the no-strings "genius grant" of $625,000 means she will have the freedom to push even harder to advance her work on behalf of the country's military families as well as the many other causes she wants to take on.

So congratulations to one of my favorite immigration lawyers. Well done, Margaret!
