Representing and protecting those who can’t, against a system stacked against them, in a language too foreign to comprehend regularly, let alone in “legal-ease” … thank you Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Network (RMIAN). We need you so much right now.
(So grateful to our clients for choosing them for us to donate to.)
Listen to this story….
“José*, originally from Mexico, has lived in the US with his family since he was 10 years old. His parents, wife and two children are all US citizens. After being arrested by immigration authorities and taken into detention, he attended RMIAN’s legal orientation presentation (LOP) at the GEO/ICE detention facility.
After hearing the attorney describe the ways to become a US citizen, José opted to complete an individual intake with a RMIAN attorney. Through the general LOP and the individual intake, José learned he was actually a US citizen since he had automatically derived citizenship when his mother naturalized.
The next day, José attended his first immigration hearing and told the immigration judge that he believed he was a citizen. He and his mother presented proof of his claim and the immigration judge terminated the removal proceedings. José was released from detention and reunited with his family. Without the LOP and RMIAN’s legal assistance, José would not have known his legal options and may have accepted deportation from the US and been separated from his entire family.”
Right Now, Immigrants in the U.S. are Terrified and Rightfully So.
There’s a whole new spotlight on immigration as of recent decades and it seems there are stories of injustice every single day on the news (well, because there are). Can you imagine living a regular day, going to work, and never coming home to your family because you were apprehended by ICE officials and didn’t have proper representation? Even children are being rounded up and placed in unsuitable accommodations meanwhile receiving questionable respect to their human rights.
The RMIAN works every single day to provide immigrants with the legal support that they might not otherwise have. As with any court case, no matter the topic, having an attorney knowledgeable in the law will help you immensely. For immigrants who may have little financial or familial support here, their non-native country, the organization can mean the difference in their lives, such as Jose* above, who may not have ever discovered that he was, in actuality, a U.S. citizen.
