Immigrants' List honors the life and work of our dear friend Michael Ratner who passed away Wednesday at the age of 72. Michael was a bold force in the war against privacy and the Bill of Rights, best known for his work on behalf of Guantánamo detainees.
Head of the Center for Constitutional Rights, Michael's work stretched from the Middle East to Haiti to the Americas and beyond. His passing marks a great loss to those who care about human rights and the defenseless... and a loss to the entire world.
We remember Michael for his tenacity and tireless efforts -- a true champion and friend.
