Let Immigrants Facing Deportation Get Legal Help in Prince George's County, Maryland
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
Prince George’s County launched the Immigration Services and Language Access Initiative last year with an initial commitment of $100,000 to support representation for county residents in immigration detention, interpretation services, and community education. To ensure that residents across the county have access to interpretation services and ensure all residents are represented, the County is considering an increase of that initial investment. Many don’t know that people incarcerated in the civil immigration system are not provided with a free representation. In the Baltimore Immigration Court, Maryland residents who had an attorney where 4x as likely to win their case – imagine the impact on Prince George's County families!
Prince George’s County is one of close to 20 other jurisdictions across the nation that have adopted universal representation programs for immigrants and community members, making Maryland one of the most inclusive places in the country.
Tell the County Council you want county residents facing deportation to receive legal services – before their May 1 hearing.
