Thomas Ragland to Speak at The Heritage Foundation Panel
On Tuesday, October 29, 2019, Thomas Ragland will take part in a panel discussion entitled “Assessing the Potential of the TRAP Act to Prevent Interpol Abuse,” sponsored by The Heritage Foundation.
Interpol is a valuable partner in the fight against transnational crime and terrorism, but autocratic governments around the world have realized that they can manipulate Interpol’s system of alerts to harass journalists, political opponents, and businesspeople. The bipartisan TRAP Act (Transnational Repression Accountability and Prevention Act) seeks to put the U.S. in the forefront of the fight against Interpol abuse. The panel will assess the problem of Interpol abuse and the TRAP Act’s potential to prevent it.
Ragland is Member-in-Charge of the firm's Washington, DC office and an active member of the immigration group. He is a seasoned litigator known for handling complex matters for both individual and corporate clients. He has specific experience in district court and appellate litigation, defense against removal, immigration consequences of criminal convictions, asylum, waivers of inadmissibility, citizenship and permanent residence, complex consular matters, post-conviction relief in federal court, and defense against terrorism- and security-related bars to admission.
