The Project

At New Mexico Immigrant Law Center (NMILC), Casey (he/him/his) provides legal services to immigrant communities in southern New Mexico that were impacted by COVID-19.

Casey represented individuals throughout New Mexico in his previous role with Innovation Law Lab while living in El Paso, Texas. There, he saw the great need for legal services and the amplification of immigrant voices in the state. Casey is excited to continue serving immigrant communities in southern New Mexico.

Fellowship Plans

Casey’s Fellowship addresses the lack of legal services for immigrant communities in southern New Mexico. There is little to no pro bono legal services available to immigrants in the southern half of the state. These communities need help with affirmative and defensive immigration services to help rebound from COVID-19.
Casey will aid both detained and non-detained immigrants throughout southern New Mexico. He will be NMILC’s first full-time staff member dedicated to representing immigrants. Casey will educate immigrants about their rights and provide representation in both affirmative and defensive immigration legal services.

I am excited to serve immigrants in our southern New Mexico communities where there are precious few resources and advocates.
