The Project

Immigrant families increasingly face the chilling prospect of detention or deportation of a loved one. ICE raids have destroyed the lives of many immigrants who have lived in the U.S. for decades. The worst consequences of this nightmare can be avoided. Many detainees are eligible for permanent immigration relief. Through know-your-rights presentations and legal representation, the project focused on reuniting families, preventing unnecessary detentions and arrests, and educating the detained population about their rights.
