In 2014, the Department of Homeland Security began detaining women and children from Central America who came to the US seeking asylum. The facility in Karnes City, Texas (near San Antonio) is holding 500 people, which will soon increase to 1,100.
The women and children detained in Karnes do not get appointed attorneys.
Their only hope is pro bono representation.
The Karnes Pro Bono Project offers a range of rewarding opportunities, from short-term representation to full-fledged court hearings.
Please attend our training to learn how you can represent these families in need. You do not need to speak Spanish or have experience with immigration law.
