Immigrant Defenders Law Center is a next-generation social justice law firm that defends our immigrant communities against systemic injustices in the legal system.
We envision a future where no immigrant will be forced to face immigration court alone. Our programs are a first step towards the long-term goal of providing universal representation to all immigrants facing deportation.
A basic principle of our legal system in the United States is that everyone is entitled to due process of law and a meaningful opportunity to be heard. Unfortunately, our immigration legal system routinely fails to live up to these basic standards. Access to an attorney for all immigrants involved in deportation proceedings is the first step that we have to take to ensure fairness in U.S. immigration courts.
