Recently transferred to the Retired Reserve of the U.S. Army Reserve after serving 28 years in the Military Police Corps, U.S. Army Reserve, Margaret's now practicing law in Alaska and teaching American Government as an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Political Science at the University of Alaska, Anchorage.
From 2001-2010, Margaret had taught at the U.S. Military Academy, West Point, New York; she'd also been a Visiting Fellow at the Border Policy Research Institute at Western Washington University.
She earned her B.A. degree from Harvard-Radcliffe, an M.P.A. from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, her J.D. from Harvard Law, and her Master of Strategic Studies from the Army War College.
Margaret recently concluded service as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations Independent Task Force on U.S. Immigration Policy. That service coincides with her scholarly interests and expertise -- including testimony before Congress -- in immigration, citizenship, national security, military affairs, and constitutional law. In her guest post below, she offers a critique of a new U.S. Army regulation that renders persons who are citizens both of the United States and another country ineligible for many Army jobs.
