The Project

Eliana’s project¬†focused on protecting parental rights and reducing the trauma for children whose parents were, without warning, taken away by immigration, detained and possibly deported. She served immigrant families in rural poor communities in the greater Sacramento region by helping parents understand their rights and legal options; helping them develop plans for the care of their children in the event they are separated; and drafting legal documents, (e.g. guardianship) for those parents who choose to leave their children in the U.S.
