We are looking to raise $2,100 to fund JSS’ work at the border and to make sure asylum seekers have access to information and legal aid. Any funds received in excess of the trip costs will go directly to support JSS’ new Immigration Legal Services program.
We will send Carrie Fox-Kline, MSW, our Immigration Legal Services and Quality Assurance Director to El Paso and Ciudad Juarez for the week of September 22nd. Carrie will teach asylum seekers about their rights and provide legal screenings to asylum seekers in Ciudad Juarez
We know how important it is for asylum seekers to have legal support. Right now more than 13,000 individuals are stuck in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, either waiting at the border to request asylum, or because the US sent them back to Mexico to wait for their asylum claims to be decided.
