The Project

Gilbert helped immigrant children who have crossed the U.S. border, without a parent or guardian, navigate complex immigration court proceedings. Fellows represent children in immigration removal proceedings, as well as before U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and state court proceedings related to a child’s immigration case. Responsibilities include screening clients for trauma, abuse, and trafficking and making referrals to additional services as appropriate.
