The Project

In the absence of comprehensive immigration reform on the national level, North Carolina has seen a dramatic increase in immigrant detentions and deportations, especially through local enforcement programs. As a result, immigrant communities live in fear, and families are at risk of being torn apart. Tana aimed to equip immigrant communities to assert their rights and respond to these frightening situations, as well as to provide direct representation to immigrant detainees.
