Lawyers for Civil Rights fights discrimination on behalf of immigrant families and children. In the current climate, immigrant communities are experiencing unprecedented challenges, including unlawful detentions in sensitive locations such as schools and courthouses. At the federal level, life-saving immigration protections have been dismantled, including humanitarian programs such as Temporary Protected Status (TPS), which provides relief to immigrants from countries experiencing war and environmental cataclysm.
In response to the current climate, LCR filed the first lawsuits in the country against the Trump Administration on behalf of sanctuary cities; to save TPS on behalf of Salvadoran and Honduran immigrants; and to block immigration arrests in courthouses. LCR successfully reunited children who were forcibly separated by the federal government from their parents at the U.S. border.
