James Trusty Discusses California’s Immigration Standoff on Fox News

Jim Trusty, a partner at Ifrah Law and former Chief of the Department of Justice’s Organized Crime and Gang Division, made a weekend appearance on Fox News to discuss whether California officials are breaking the law by not cooperating with federal immigration policy.

Mr Trusty, leader of Ifrah Law’s White Collar Defense practice group, has 28 years of experience as a prosecutor; he now focuses his practice on the litigation and resolution of complex disputes for clients facing issues ranging from cybersecurity and computer fraud, to money laundering and asset forfeiture. His recent successes include securing release for an international client jailed for alleged arms control violations and securing a dismissal of a felony indictment against a foreign gaming executive. Jim was also part of the Ifrah team that successfully advocated for the removal of various corporate entities and individuals from Treasury’s OFAC List.

For six years, Jim served as Chief of DOJ’s Organized Crime and Gang Division, where he was ultimately responsible for investigating and prosecuting regional, national, and international cases, supervising significant pleadings and providing strategic and tactical guidance in complex investigations and multi-defendant trials. In addition to running the RICO review unit, he also was in charge of establishing and promoting policies focused on immigration reform, firearms trafficking, proposed Congressional testimony for DOJ officials, and Internet gambling. Jim was previously an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Maryland working under current U.S. DOJ Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
