The Project

Patricia provided legal services to immigrants detained in North Texas. Many of these people have relief available to them, but most forgo even applying for relief due to the lack of representation currently available. Additionally, Patricia alleviated this problem by educating detained immigrants and families regarding their rights, providing legal representation for detained immigrants, and providing training and support to pro bono attorneys willing to represent detained immigrants.
