About Margaret

Margaret Stock focuses her practice on immigration and citizenship law. She is a nationally known expert on immigration and national security laws, and has testified regularly before Congressional committees on immigration, homeland security, and military matters. As a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the Military Police, U.S. Army Reserve, Margaret has extensive experience with U.S. military issues.  For her groundbreaking work developing programs to better the lives of immigrants and native-born military personnel, Margaret was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (also known as a ‘genius grant’) in 2013.

She has also worked as a professor at the United States Military Academy at West Point, and served as an adjunct instructor at the University of Alaska. Margaret served as a member of the American Bar Association Commission on Immigration from 2008-2012. She regularly authors articles on military-related immigration issues, and is well-versed on “parole in place” for military family members and the Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (“MAVNI”) Program. Margaret authored the book Immigration Law & the Military, which was published by the American Immigration Lawyers Association in 2012.

Both houses of Congress have passed a FY15 (October 1, 2014 – September 30, 2015) appropriations bill which the President has signed into law. That bill funds the Department of Homeland Security only through February 27, 2015, setting up another opportunity for Congress to consider and possibly defund President Obama's recent executive action plan as well as continued implementation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which some members of Congress also believe to be unlawful. Prospects for consideration of a comprehensive immigration reform bill remain uncertain.

Immigration changes in the form of President Obama’s recent fiat – an action he publicly called unlawful twenty two separate times – are not the answer. Alaskans have consistently rejected this type of executive overreach time and time again. We must work together towards thoughtful, comprehensive, immigration reform of the current broken system.

Make plans to attend and hear Margaret give us an easy-to-understand presentation on the latest in immigration reform.

See you there!
