Detention Center Legal Services
Getting good legal advice is one of the biggest challenges immigrants face when they are detained. Each day countless immigrants are arrested and deported because their rights under the law have not been defended. Immigration detainees have no right to a lawyer at government expense, but can hire a lawyer on their own. It is very hard to win an asylum or cancellation of removal case in detention without a lawyer.
We provide legal representation to detained immigrants in Immigration Court at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, WA, during their hearings. As part of our representation of detained asylum seekers, we help them complete their applications and prepare materials to present at hearings. We can coordinate with family and friends of detained immigrants to better present the case.
We can also represent detained immigrants at bond hearings to try to get them released from detention.
