As the only legal non-profit servicing the detained immigrant population of Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., our clients all come to us while they are detained. CAIR Coalition regularly visits detention centers to educate immigrants about their rights and conduct a preliminary intake to identify potential clients for pro bono teams.
Prior to placing any case with a pro bono team, CAIR Coalition staff undertakes a thorough review of the client’s legal options. This includes interviews with the client, conversations with the client’s family and friends, and review of public records. While we cannot guarantee the results of any case or that a case will not have a few twists and turns, we can guarantee that we will not place a case with a pro bono team before we do industry-leading due diligence.
