WOMEN’S REFUGEE COMMISSION BIDS FOND FAREWELL TO NDPA 🌟 SUPERSTAR MICHELLE BRANÉ AS SHE TAKES KEY POSITION WITH BIDEN ADMINISTRATION! — “We can’t imagine a better person at the helm of the family separation task force. It’s a smart move by the Biden administration, and a massive win for the nation and for separated families.“

 

Dear Paul,

I am extremely proud to let you know that Michelle Brané, long-time director of the Women’s Refugee Commission’s Migrant Rights and Justice program, is headed to the Biden administration—effective immediately—to serve as executive director of the newly formed Interagency Task Force on the Reunification of Families. The task force is charged with identifying and reuniting families that were cruelly separated under the Trump administration.

In Michelle’s 14 years at WRC, she built our Migrant Rights and Justice program from the ground up. She and her team have been trailblazers in the work to protect the rights of women and girls seeking asylum in the United States.

An truly inspired and very encouraging choice by the the Biden Administration! The only “downside” — I had Michelle on my “shortlist” for key judicial or executive positions at the “New EOIR,” as well as for an Article III judicial appointment! But, that still could and should happen when her a work at the Interagency Task Force is done! 

Michelle is a prime example of the “new generation” of due-process-oriented leaders that the NDPA produces! Brilliant, tough-minded, battle-hardened, “practical scholars,” experts, and innovative managers who will see the battle for social justice through to success, no matter how long it takes. Her background, starting at the BIA, also demonstrates how Judge Garland could and must remake EOIR into a “model judiciary” that attracts, trains, and exports the “best and the brightest” for high level judicial and policy positions.

But, it’s not going to happen unless the current awful mess at EOIR is replaced with “Michelle caliber experts” from the NDPA.

Congrats again, Michelle. You make us all proud!
