Sen. Tammy Duckworth
The USC Gould School of Law and the Center for Law and Military Policy in mid-March hosted the Deported Veterans Symposium, featuring a conversation with U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth, a retired Army National Guard lieutenant colonel. 
 
The three-day symposium raised awareness about barriers and affirming a pathway to citizenship for service members. Laura Riley (JD 2010), assistant professor of lawyering skills, who co-teaches the Veterans Legal Practicum at USC Gould, moderated the conversation with Sen. Duckworth, touching on the congresswoman’s efforts to raise awareness of the plight of veterans deported after their military service. 
 
Sen. Duckworth highlighted the value of enlisting immigrants or children of immigrants who speak fluently in other languages and understand other cultures with troops around the world. 
 
“These folks come with specific skill sets that we need to keep America safe,” she said.
