If you are outraged by the reports of a new wave of raids targeting families and UACs who are now over the age of 18, please take a moment to Take Action: Tell President Obama to Stop the Raids. Advocates will also have the opportunity to ask their members of Congress to condemn these enforcement tactics that undermine fundamental due process and risk sending children and their mothers back to extremely dangerous situations. Don’t forget to share widely with your chapter and network! I promise this Take Action will only take a few minutes to complete!
AILA National has also updated their Practice Resources page to help attorneys provide legal services to unaccompanied children and families affected by humanitarian crisis in Central America (AILA Doc No. 14072246). Please check it out for additional information given these ongoing issues.
Lastly, if you have any information on round ups or raids happening in your community please share it with AILA National by completing this form.
Thanks for taking the time to stand up against these new waves of ICE raids!
