ABA President Calls for Lawyer Volunteers at Border Projects

A recent grant from the American Bar Endowment will enable the ABA Commission on Immigration to lead monthly, weeklong volunteer trips to each of its two legal services projects on the southern border. In April, May, June, and July volunteers will work at the South Texas Pro Bono Asylum Representation Project (“ProBAR”) in Harlingen, Texas. In August, volunteers will travel to San Diego, California, to work with the Immigration Justice Project (“IJP”). Volunteers on these trips will get direct experience on the frontlines witnessing the immigration detention and removal systems and hearing directly from asylum-seekers and others on why they undergo dangerous travel to the United States seeking protection.
