The Project

Taylor is on the Asylum and Detention team at New Mexico Immigrant Law Center (NMILC) as their staff attorney. Their services include helping complete and submit 589’s, doing outreach at New Mexico’s detention centers, and directly representing clients most in need of representation in their asylum cases, bond or parole.

COVID-19 is ongoing, and many people are detained in centers that are neither safe nor sanitized. The project helps asylum seekers in detention get released and into safe spaces with friends and family.

Fellowship Highlights

Public interest work is the only kind of work Taylor hopes to do. It is important to her to use her privilege to be an agent of change in the community. This Fellowship program is a perfect fit for Taylor because it allows her to use all of her skills and become part of a greater team that serves the community.
