An immigration attorney from Portland, Oregon has offered assistance to the Gray family of Trenton in the family's attempts to allow Lauren Gray to legally remain in the United States when she turns 21 next month. Brent Renison is with the law firm Parrilli-Renison of Portland.

He is part of the efforts in determining who Lauren, and her mother Ali, should see when they are in Washington, DC on Monday and Tuesday of next week (July 30th and 31st):

The attorney talked about the assistance that the office of Congressman Sam Graves is providing the family:

Renison said the people likely to influence and have discussion about the issue are members of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees. Those committees oversee immigration issues. Efforts are being made for the Gray's to meet House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith of Texas.

Renison said the more important debate is occurring in the House of Representatives. The Portland attorney said efforts also were being made to have a lawyer from Washington, DC to help the Gray's while they are in the Nation's Capital:
