At a time when each day brings news of inhumane treatment of asylum-seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border, threats of mass deportations, and horrifying conditions in detention facilities, we need your help more than ever. CLINIC’s reach is expansive and significant, but the current crisis demands more. We cannot ignore the cries for help our staff have heard at the border. CLINIC is launching a project in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico to provide legal guidance and representation to people seeking asylum. At its most basic, this project will save lives.
As it has for more than 30 years, CLINIC will continue to fight for the rights of immigrants by developing and overseeing projects that support and assist vulnerable immigrant populations: reuniting formerly separated families; increasing legal representation for those in removal proceedings and detention; representing individuals impacted by the Muslim travel ban; providing public education on immigration law and policies; and advocating nationally and at the state level.
History has taught us is that people who step up can make a difference. We hope you will join us.
