InReach Expands Legal Offerings on United States Catalog

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”New legal subcategories enable LGBTQ immigrants to connect with legal aid in crisis” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:center|color:%234892da” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]

With existing conditions under the current administration, an increasing number of asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants are facing detention and deportation in the United States. In response, InReach has expanded its resource catalog’s verified legal offerings beyond the affirmative asylum process to include guidance regarding detention and deportation as well as other immigration options (e.g. SIJS, DACA) to enable LGBTQ immigrants to connect with legal aid – particularly pro bono support – as easily and quickly as possible. These updates make the InReach Catalog more inclusive of detained asylum seekers, asylum seekers facing deportation, transgender asylum seekers, LGBTQ immigrant youth, and LGBTQ DREAMers.
