Just last year, Immigration and Customs Enforcement detained over 400,000 immigrants – long-term residents, asylum seekers, and the seriously ill. Nearly 14,000 were children fleeing gang violence, abuse, or human trafficking, and many arrived without a parent or guardian. With no legal right to an attorney, and no ability to pay for a private lawyer, few detained adults (or children!) can navigate the complex legal system on their own. The only Washington-area nonprofit dedicated exclusively to assisting detained immigrants, the Capital Area Immigrants' Rights Coalition is their last hope. For 1,700 individuals, it provides legal orientation, individual consultation, pro bono representation, assistance for asylum-seekers, post-release transition planning, and youth-focused legal services and “Know Your Rights” presentations at nine jails and juvenile centers. It also serves as a vital community resource on detention and deportation questions, and advocates passionately for the rights of immigrants, including detainees with mental illnesses. Consider this: in 2012, CAIR Coalition served 222 unaccompanied immigrant kids – twice as many as in 2011. The need is growing: can your support grow with it?
