The Project

The project will provide community outreach and legal advocacy to abandoned, abused, and neglected immigrant youth in west Texas and southern New Mexico, enabling those who are eligible to apply for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status—giving them a pathway to citizenship. The project will also build a pro bono network, collaborate with regional law students, and improve the organizational capacity of New Mexico organizations to serve this population.
