Monica Ontiveros (3L) and Lukas Hiner (3L) secure critical certification from the U.S. Department of Labor that their client was a victim of trafficking crimes as a migrant agricultural worker

Monica and Lukas, students in the Immigration Litigation & Appellate Clinic, partnered with the Northwest Justice Project to provide assistance to three men who had received agricultural worker visas to harvest blueberries on farms in California and Washington. Once here, the men were fed rotten food, denied wages and benefits they had been promised, forced to work without immigration authorization, and threatened with criminal and immigration prosecution if they objected to conditions. The certification from the U.S. Department of Labor details wide-ranging abuse of the workers and paves the way for key immigration benefits for the men and their families.
