Previously, he was the staff attorney of the detention program at Immigration Equality, where he represented LGBTQ asylum seekers whose interactions with the criminal justice system placed them at risk of immigration detention and deportation. Clement also previously worked as supervising immigration attorney at Make the Road New York. In his work, Clement advocates for the rights of LGBT communities who have been persecuted on account of their sexual orientation or gender identity, or who have been trafficked, and other individuals whose undocumented status has pushed them to the fringes of the formal economy.
