Professor Mariano-Florentino Cuellar is featured in an article by the Imperial Valley Press regarding his selection as an immigration policy work group leader under President-elect Obama:

President-elect Barack Obama has chosen Tino Cuéllar, a Calexico High School graduate, to lead his transition team’s immigration policy group.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported this week that Cuéllar, a law professor at Stanford University, will lead one of seven groups that Obama has convened to develop policy priorities for his administration.

Cuéllar, 36, is a 1990 graduate of Calexico High School who went on to receive a bachelor’s degree from Harvard, a law degee from Yale and a Ph.D. in political science from Stanford. He became a professor at Stanford in 2001.
