Unaccompanied Minor Immigrants Legal Representation National Sign Up Campaign
The ABA Working Group on Unaccompanied Minor Immigrants invites you to sign up to take a pro bono case of an unaccompanied minor immigrant in observance of the National Day of Service on October 30, 2015 as part of the ABA Celebrate Pro Bono Week.
What is the campaign about?
In the summer of 2014, thousands of unaccompanied children from Central America arrived at the southwest border of the United States fleeing harm and seeking protection from the United States.
Click here to hear the stories of these children in a new documentary: http://www.nytimes.com/video/world/americas/100000003901101/central-america-child-migrants.html.
When these children arrive in the United States, they are detained and placed in deportation proceedings without the assistance of appointed legal counsel.
Without legal representation, these children cannot defend themselves or present their legitimate claims for relief from deportation.
What can you do to help?
