While a 2017 Gallup poll found that about 70 percent of Americans considered immigration a “good thing” for the United States, increasingly stringent legal barriers have made the lives and path to citizenship for immigrants—particularly poor immigrants—in the U.S. significantly more difficult. We are in the midst of an administration dedicated to a program of stripping children from their families and detaining families that are here illegally according to a draconian legal framework.

These families need help in seeking the promise of justice and liberty—the most fundamental of American principles. The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees on the frontline of this debate in South and Central Texas.

With offices in Austin, Corpus, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio, RAICES is the largest immigration non-profit in the state promoting the pursuit of justice for these communities. Visit the RAICES website to learn more and show your support by donating or volunteering to help these families.
