As promised, here are additional chances to help the immigrants, courtesy of Lawyers for Good Government.


More than 2,000 kids have been taken from their parents at the border, with more taken daily and shipped to child "detention centers." While many have said they feel helpless in the face of this tragedy, you are not. There's a lot you can do. /2
Below are efforts identified by Lawyers for Good Government (L4GG) under the leadership of Traci Feit Love, our President. I’m on the L4GG Board of Directors.
The L4GG Foundation has partnered with AILA (the American Immigration Lawyers' Association) to help meet the need for volunteer lawyers to assist with the current humanitarian crisis./4
If you need to work remotely (from home), you can help with remote bond hearings or prepare parole packets, or conduct country conditions research for pro se asylum seekers./5
If you can travel for a week to Dilley, TX, you can volunteer with a group of L4GG lawyers to help immigrant mothers prepare for credible fear interviews./6
If you live in CO, NJ, or OH, there are other ways to help in-person. If you speak Spanish fluently, you can help translate (over the phone) for lawyers who don't speak Spanish but have time to represent immigrant clients. Training is available for most of these opportunities./7
Bottom line: go to the form and fill it out so we know how you can help. Once you've filled it out, you'll get an email about next steps. Follow the instructions in the email./8…
