Epoch Times: Asian American activist immigration attorney releases first statement since indictment

posted by Randall

Bonnie Youn  As the cliche goes, Bonnie Youn is down but not out.

A poor choice of words because Youn is certainly not a cliche.

Last year she was honored by the White House for her work as an immigration attorney and as a Champion for Change.

According to the indictment, Youn “is charged with obtaining legal status for a client in this country by filing false documents with the United States Government, and encouraging them to lie to federal agents.”

“What I am experiencing cannot compare to the pain of families torn apart, or of those unlawfully detained, Youn told the Epoch Times.  “I am only made more fully aware than ever that there is injustice and unfairness in the world, and we must resolve to fight it in every way we can, with our every breath. It is the American way.”

Mary Silver  argues that the media has already convicted Youn, and reminds us she is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

You can read more of Silver’s thoughts on the case in the Epoch Times.
