Abraham Lincoln may never have envisioned today's multicultural society, but it was during his tenure in public office that the immigrant population grew significantly and faced great challenges.

Judge Castillo sees in Abraham Lincoln's way of working with people of diverse perspectives and backgrounds, a guide for the law, ethics and leadership in our multicultural society.

Ruben Castillo, U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of Illinois, reflected on Lincoln's legacy and its impact regarding immigration, human rights, and citizenship today.
