I’ve not recovered from the shock after I realized yesterday of the death of Michael Hethmon of the Immigration Reform Legislation Institute (IRLI) on Saturday in a collision with one other automobile; the motive force of the opposite automobile has been charged with manslaughter. I’ve not been capable of focus to put in writing however I have to say one thing.
Like me, Mike went to regulation college late in life. The truth is, I first met Mike whereas I used to be in regulation college. After regulation college, Mike introduced me in to work with IRLI. Mike championed the efforts to guard American employees. Our first effort, the challenge to the Optional Practical Training (OPT) guestworker program continues to be occurring after twelve and a half years. It took a number of dedication on Mike’s half to carry this about.
Mike was significantly gifted at utilizing phrases. In reviewing briefs, he was capable of rework my terse engineering writing into stunning prose. He knew the immigration statutes and laws. My e-mail is filled with responses from Mike to questions on immigration.
Mike was scheduled to retire on the finish of 12 months.
