The webinar will also discuss the importance of the Executive Office for Immigration Review’s Legal Orientation Program (LOP) and other pro bono legal group presentations (“Know Your Rights” presentations) that take place inside ICE detention facilities nationwide. Finally, the webinar will discuss the efforts of ICE to provide detainees with access to useful legal materials, including the ABA Know Your Rights Video and other self-help legal resources available in most detention center law libraries.
