The Project

Kate’s project is centered on the T. Don Hutto Family Residential Center in Taylor, Texas. This is a former medium-security prison converted to house immigrant families as they await their immigration hearings. This project had three parts. First, Kate recruited a pro bono panel of attorneys to represent these immigrant families in their asylum hearings. Second, Kate gave orientation and rights presentations to the families as they enter the facility. Third, Kate provided individual representation to clients.
