The Immigrants' List Board of Directors cordially invite you to the:

9th Annual Michael Maggio Award Reception

The Michael Maggio Award honors the memory of the nationally recognized immigration attorney who was one of the founders of Immigrants' List.  Established in 2008 to honor Michael's memory, the Immigrants' List Maggio Award is conferred annually to members of Congress who evidence, by words or deeds, a firm commitment to advancing the interest of immigrants in the United States.

We are beyond excited to announce Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (NV) as IL's Maggio Award recipient for this year. Named after one of IL's founders, this award is given annually to those who have dedicated their lives to fighting for the rights of immigrants

Catherine Cortez Masto was recently elected to the United States Senate from Nevada after an extremely competitive and highly watched campaign. The granddaughter of a Mexican immigrant, she previously served as Nevada's Attorney General from 2007 to 2015 prior to being elected as the first Latina to serve in the US Senate.

As a lifelong advocate for immigrants, she now has an enormous platform to continue to fight from. In the wake of President Trump's anti-immigrant executive order released at the end of January, Senator Cortez Masto introduced her first bill in the Senate, S.415.
