Immigration law attorney Carolina Antonini was interviewed by Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Jeremy Redmon for his article, “Immigrants in Georgia anxious following Donald Trump’s election victory.” The article discusses the fears that many immigrants have about Trump’s vow to crack down on illegal immigration, including the potential cancellation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) process.
Carolina was asked about the calls she has been receiving at Antonini & Cohen since the election and commented, “Everybody, of course, wants to know what will happen. And, of course, the answer is: ‘I don’t know.’ I hope the answer is a humane answer.” To those helping others apply for DACA, Carolina added, “There should be some amount of guilt or uneasiness for any of us – any nonprofits, any for-profits, any private firms, any uncles or aunts – who helped these young people do this. This is what I tell them: You have played fair. You have done the right thing. You have used the programs that were set up for you… I have to believe we are a country of humane law.”
