The threat Trump poses that gets almost no attention

On Monday July 3, 2017, The Washington Post opinion writer  published an article titled “The threat Trump poses that gets almost no attention.” With several hot button issues highlighted in the media recently, this article served as a timely effort to showcase the issues revolving around funding for legal services organizations, like Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida (CLSMF), and the impact it can have on the people in the communities these organizations serve. Mario Figueroa, one of CLSMF’s veteran clients, spoke to Catherine to inform her of just how much legal aid impacted his life, and now many others like him who are in need of such help may not gain access to it for lack of funding. Catherine said that when speaking to Mario he stated that he “credited his local legal aid program with saving his life.” Mario also was quoted saying “people like to say they support veterans and stand behind veterans…[but] that’s just an empty phrase” if this support cannot be met with action.
