Partner Dani Rizzo of our immigration law team spoke to an NBC News Digital reporter this week about the recent proposal to classify the Customs and Border Patrol as a “security agency.” CBP advocated fpr the designation out of concern for the safety concerns of employees, particularly enforcement agents. But Dani points out in the interview that the new classification could create unintended consequences in terms of understanding enforcement decisions. “Transparency goes hand in hand with accountability,” she told NBC.
