Immigration attorney Isabel Cueva discusses immigration policies, immigration reform, and her own journey from undocumented immigrant to a US citizen on KFI AM 60 August 29, 2013.
Cueva, an attorney with the law firm of Higbee & Associates, talked immigration law during a prime-time interview on California’s most listened to radio station, KFI AM 60, Los Angeles. On the show, attorney Cueva shared her own personal story of going from undocumented immigrant to successful attorney.
KFI is the most listed to AM radio station in Los Angeles with programs like the Tim Conway, Jr. Show and is LA’s News Center offering More Stimulating Talk Radio for Los Angeles since 1922.
In 1994, when she was 8-years-old on a very hot 4th of July, Cueva snuck into the United States as an undocumented immigrant with her brother, mother, and grandfather by way of Nogales, Arizona from Guadalajara, Mexico to be reunited with her father in Utah. Conway pointed out that Cueva’s story is a unique one, and that her undocumented immigration defies misconceptions that all undocumented immigrants are criminals and gang bangers, proving that many undocumented immigrants are merely family members of US citizens who are simply trying to be reunited.
Attorney Cueva insists that “this country needs immigration reform. It is imperative for our economic growth.” Instead of spending 12 billion dollars a year on stronger border control and deporting current immigrants, Cueva proposes the need for a successful, multi-faceted approach to reform including “growth in the economy, the need for an increased labor market, and the need for future immigration.”
Now, as an immigration attorney, Cueva pays it forward by helping immigrants to gain residency and citizenship. For a free case evaluation to see if you or someone you know is eligible for immigration services, please visit ImmigrateFast.com or call 855-519-3970.
