Harvard Law Today highlights Gary M. Wingens and other Harvard Law School alumni regarding their role in mobilizing law firms and nonprofits in a coordinated, nationwide pro bono effort to secure representation for children separated from their parents under government policy. The article notes that Wingens and Paul Weiss chair Brad Karp coauthored New York Times Op-Ed, “The Law Did Not Create This Crisis, but Lawyers Will Help End It,” which presented a unified front of over 30 law firms calling for the administration to develop an immediate plan for reunifying more than 2,300 children separated from their parents upon entering the United States. The Harvard profile quotes Wingens: “We are advocating that every child should have the right to counsel, have their case presented in the best possible light, and have an informed immigration judge make a decision under the law.” He continues: “Representing families in immigration proceedings is not a new issue, but the child separation policy is … reckless. It is designed to deprive children and families of their rights to seek asylum, and it shows a complete disregard for the rights and well-being of these children and their families.” Concluding on a hopeful note, Wingens observes that “there are enough lawyers out there who are ready to take every case. ... There are that many people who have come forward and are willing to help.”
