The Project

Represent unaccompanied minors in removal proceedings.

The Inspiration

Need Addressed By Project
This project will give children an attorney so that they don't have to navigate through the immigration removal process pro se.
The Right Person For This Project
Jordan is the right person for this project because:
• He refuses to let this vulnerable population be stripped of their guaranteed right to a full and fair hearing in immigration court
• He believes it is time to address the 4th and 5th amendment violations seen in many of these cases
