It was reported that hours before passing on October 17th, US Congressman and Oversight & Reform Committee Chairman, Elijah Cummings, had signed two subpoenas from his hospital bed that were directed at two US immigration agencies: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Services (ICE). He will be laid to rest as the first African American to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol’s Sanctuary Hall.
Everyone at McEntee Law mourns over the loss of one of the greatest champions for human rights this country has had. His life-long service and unwavering dedication to social justice is a beacon of hope during these dark times. We should all strive to #BeLikeElijah.
