Learn The Law: Immigrant Detention

Immigration-Reform-2013-e1361645579652More people than at any time in the history of the United States are in immigrant detention today. Learn the law so we can change the law.

Are you interested in learning why some immigrants get detained? Would you like to know how the immigrant detention laws work? What is the government’s power to hold an immigrant in detention? Follow this series of webcasts to learn about the law for yourself. Now, mind you, we aren’t training you to be lawyers. Don’t use the information to give legal advice to anyone – that’s just not cool. Instead, use this information to educate yourself about the immigrant detention system. And then, get involved in changing it.

Check back each week for a new lesson!

The lesson plans are courtesy of the Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon.
