RAICES provides free immigration representation, in some cases, for people who are:

In communities across the United States, our friends, families, and neighbors face detention and deportation every day. Immigrants who have access to representation are up to ten times more likely to establish a right to stay with their families and communities in the United States than immigrants who lack representation.
On February 15th, 2018 the RAICES San Antonio Deportation Defense Hotline opened to take our first calls from San Antonio residents being detained in immigration detention centers. As part of the Safe Cities Network, the City of San Antonio is modeling how local governments can step up to protect families from harmful immigration policies by expanding immigration representation.
