Boren was one of a few select Attorneys who fought to free employees in the Northern Mariana Islands from indentured servitude. Through their efforts US Immigration and Labor laws covered these employees from slavery like condtions.He cleverly negotiated an MOU with the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands which ensured the NLRA would cover workers in that remote corner of the US.
Boren was one of the best persons I have ever met. He was always optimistic and chose to see the best in people-even as he recognized their shortcomings.
He would often tell recalcitrants that they should be ashamed of themselves.They always appeared to be embarrassed or hurt when he said it.
He was a really good man. I am proud to have known hin and to call him my friend.
Mahalo nui loa for all of you life's work.
Ann, Please accept my condolences.Boren was therre fro me at a tough time in my life. I will always remember his thoughtfulness.
Aloha, Tom Cestare
