Margaret D. Stock, Lieutenant Colonel (retired), is an attorney with the Anchorage office of Cascadia Cross Border Law, where she devotes her practice to immigration and citizenship matters. Previously, she worked with the Anchorage office of Lane Powell PC. After serving 28 years as a Military Police Officer in the Army Reserve, she transferred to the Retired Reserve of the U.S. Army in June 2010. While a professor at the U.S. Military Academy, West Point, NY, Ms. Stock was temporarily assigned to the U.S. Army Accessions Command, where she developed and implemented the Department of Defense’s recruiting program, Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI). Ms. Stock was named one of the 2013 MacArthur Foundation’s Fellows due to her immigration law efforts on behalf of veterans and their families. The Foundation noted three programs she spearheaded, among them her creation and championship of the AILA Military Assistance Program (MAP), a pro bono program to help military members, veterans, and their families with immigration law matters. In its announcement, the Foundation noted that Ms. Stock’s fellowship came with a $625,000 award in recognition of her “written scholarship, and her contributions to policy debates,” all of which allow Ms. Stock to “challenge complex immigration laws in order to provide more humane and rational policies that will also serve American national security interests.”

Ms. Stock has testified before Congress numerous times on issues such as the DREAM Act, the guest-worker program, and the Hinder the Administration’s Legalization Temptation (HALT) Act. She earned her undergraduate degree from Harvard-Radcliffe and holds a Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School, a Master’s in Public Administration from Harvard Kennedy School, and a Master’s in Strategic Studies from the Army War College. Ms. Stock is admitted to practice in the state of Alaska, the U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska, and the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

 Immigration Law & the Military

Splitting my time between El Paso and San Antonio, both rather large military towns, I have found this book to be a wonderful resource and worth the investment for any practitioner's library. If you are an AILA MAP participant, the material compiled here will help ensure your support is properly focused and effective. - Edward Rios

Lieutenant Colonel (Ret) Stock’s book is a tour de force of scholarship and practical advice that fills a great need. Anyone who deals with the immigration issues of military members and their families should have this at his or her finger tips.
