Help a Young Mother Apply for Asylum

Posted February 20, 2019

Our organization is assisting a young mother who moved to Mexico from Central America because her mother's ex was trying to kill her. Her mother's ex then followed the family to Mexico, and so they fled north to the United States. She and her baby were released from ICE custody and are waiting in Los Angeles for her credible fear interview, scheduled for early mid-March. Note: The lawyer must have experience in asylum law. We do not provide training for someone who lacks that experience.
