Former commissioner says UI Law School
breaks law by defending immigrants

July 26, 2007

MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - A former Canyon County commissioner and vocal foe of illegal immigration says that instructors and students at the University of Idaho Law School are committing felonies.

Robert Vasquez says it's illegal for the school to offer free legal representation to people who face deportation or other immigration proceedings.

He says federal law states that anyone who aids and abets an illegal alien in remaining in the United States is committing a felony.

Monica Schurtman, a UI professor, says the school tries to assist clients to remain legally in the United States.
