Matthew Kolken in the News

I was quoted in the following Forbes Magazine article: "President Obama: Deporter-In-Chief"

“Everyone eligible for a deferral under Obama’s June announcement was already eligible under the Morton Memo,” said immigration attorney Matthew Kolken of BuffaloNew York.  “But since the Morton memo only favorably exercised prosecutorial discretion for 1.9 percent of all reviewed deportation cases, it’s hard to be optimistic about Obama’s most recent attempt to stem deportations for DREAMers.”  The bureaucratic inertia of DHS could delay the processing of deferrals for years.
