As thousands of people are forced to flee their homelands and the humanitarian crisis at the border unfolds, the CMC is responding to meet the increasing need for immigration legal representation in our community. Help us keep families together!
The CMC Immigration Legal Services team is expanding our program’s services to aid our brothers and sisters fleeing violence, war, hunger, and extreme poverty among other crises in their home countries. Many cannot afford the fees of a private immigration attorney and most, if not all, individuals seeking asylum will face deportation and will require representation in court to defend their case. Our program has made the decision to begin representing immigrants facing removal proceedings in immigration court.
Rolling out this expansion, which builds on our already robust list of legal services, increases program costs with each new family or individual served. So we are turning to you, the community, for help in closing this financial gap.
If you are concerned about the reports of the humanitarian crisis at the border, and wonder what you can do to help here locally, please support the CMC Immigration Legal Services program. Your help will have a direct impact for families in need of representation in our area! Some have recently fled their country, and now face a protracted legal battle just so they can live peacefully in the US.
Your donation helps assure the CMC can provide the necessary legal services to enable those families who have fought so desperately just to arrive here to find the peace and hope of a brighter tomorrow.
