Donate to A Lawtina’s Journey To Help Immigrant Familias

“My name is Jackie Rodriguez and I am currently a second-year law student at Mitchell Hamline School of Law in Saint Paul, Minnesota. This year I was given the opportunity to volunteer in the Immigration Clinic, where I will be traveling to Texas in January and representing immigrant women and children in the Dilley, Texas, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Family Detention Center. This facility is the largest immigrant family detention center the federal government opened in 2014. During my time there, I will interview, prepare and represent women and children detained at the Dilley Family Detention Facility in the following matters before the following agencies: Citizenship and Immigration Service Asylum Office in Credible Fear and Reasonable Fear interviews; ICE officers to request bonds; Executive Office for Immigration Review Immigration Court for bond hearings and review of denials of Credible Fear and Reasonable Fear hearings; and Research and draft asylum claims. However, students participating are responsible for transportation and accommodation in Dilley, Texas. It is therefore, that I have decided to raise funds to help cover the cost of my trip. Anything you may be able to donate will help me and the rest of the law students represent immigrants seeking protection in the United States.
Thank you in advance for your generous support and contribution. The funds will be used to ensure justice and fairness is delivered to those seeking the American Dream.
