The Project

Over 200,000 immigrants are detained throughout the U.S. each year. The majority lack access to counsel. Talia’s project focused on providing and expanding access to legal counsel for detained immigrants in the Los Angeles area. In order to achieve this aim, Talia taught a legal orientation class to immigration detainees, provided individual consults for people who lack representation, and identified those with meritorious claims for relief. Additionally, she provided direct representation as well as facilitated representation by pro bono counsel.
