Immigrant Rights Hotline in Houston

Dear colleagues:

 

I am so excited to announce that the Collaborative, the ACLU of Texas, Vinson & Elkins, Tahirih Justice Center, and Houston Volunteer Lawyers are launching an Immigrant Rights Hotline in Houston on Wednesday, Feb. 22 @9am.

 

Hotline number: 1-888-507-2970.

Operating: Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm.

 

Please feel free to circulate this number and the attached flyer to your clients, communities, and networks.

 

If you are interested in volunteering, sign up at: https://portal.makejusticehappen.org/signups/hotline.aspx

 

The hotline will equip volunteers to respond to a variety of calls, such as:

  • General questions about current immigration laws, rules, and regulations, including theĀ  Executive Orders on immigration issues
  • Questions about the Travel Ban impacting refugees and citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen
  • Reporting a hate incident or discrimination
  • Questions about the rights immigrants have regarding their legal status and immigration enforcement
  • Families looking for help in locating their detained relatives
  • Individuals looking for immigration legal services
  • Referrals for other types of legal representation (e.g. civil law issues)

 

Best,

Andrea
