Attorney Luis Cespedes on Local Immigration Issues


Our speaker for January 20th will be Luis Cespedes, whose practice includes civil rights litigation and complex criminal post conviction relief for non-citizens facing removal or denial of naturalization. He has represented clients facing deportation and seeking immigration relief before the Department of Homeland Security (USCIS.)

He was named by Mayor Darrell Steinberg, and the Sacramento City Council to Chair the Lawyer's Advisory Committee to the City Council's Safe Haven Task Force chaired by Council Member Eric Guerra. The Task Force was formed to respond to litigation from the Trump administration seeking to deny federal funds to "Sanctuary Cities"; re-writing the city's "Sanctuary Ordinance" initially designed to protect refugees from Central America in the mid-80's, and create a legal entity to assist families defend and protect against deportation. The City has created the Family Unity, Education, and Legal Network (FUEL) with initial funding of $300,000 and $100,000 from the Vera Institute of Justice.

Mr. Cespedes was named the "2018 Distinguished Attorney of the Year" by the Sacramento County Bar Association during its 100th Centennial Celebration. A graduate of U.C. Berkeley School of Law , he earned his B.A. and M.A. from Occidental College and has a 37 year record of public and community service, including serving as a Pro Tem Settlement Conference Judge for the Sacramento County Superior Court.

Those of you who wish to learn more of Mr Cespedes’ story can read about him in the November issue of the Sacramento County Bar Association magazine at: (page 20 et al.)
