From the Border to Detention: Understanding our Immigration System

Monday, May 7, 2018
Parish Hall

What motivates people to migrate?

What happens once they are detained by immigration authorities?

How hard is it to get released?

How can we support our community members who are locked up in remote detention facilities?

Every day we hear stories about immigration in the news, and it can be difficult to separate fact from fiction. Carmen Smith-Estrada will address these questions In her presentation on the work of the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project. The Florence Project is the only nonprofit organization providing access to justice for detained immigrants in Arizona.
