Friday Feature: Bench-Pressed (2013)

Bench-pressedBench-Pressed: A Judge Recounts the Many Blessings and Heavy Lessons of Hearing Immigration Asylum Cases features five cases heard by retired Federal Judge Susan Yarborough.  The stories of asylum seekers from Guatamala, Nicaragua, Cuba, Palestine and El Salvador highlight some of the situations that force asylees to flee. 

Reviews state that it’s rare to access insight into the human side of asylum cases and that this memoir is well written and easy to read.

Thanks once again to Nadine Pedusseau, Case Management Supervisor at Catholic Charities Archdiocese of San Diego for identifying this timely topic.

(Every Friday we highlight one entertainment option related to our clients or some aspect of our work to help you celebrate the weekend and possibly recommend to employers and other community supporters in the following week.)
