New Guide That Helps Stop People's Deportation

In effort to stop the deportation of folks, it would seem that the National Immigration Project, the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, the Immigrant Defense Project, the Washington Defenders Association, and the National Immigration Law Center have created a guide to help folks stop their own or others deportation. Much like the guide created by Educators for Fair Consideration a while back, the guide outlines on how folks who get caught up in the immigration system, can have some form of fighting back and turning the tide that is constantly against us.

I skimmed through it, not in detail cause it's a lot to take in, but it seems like it highlights some proven steps that have been working thus far. The gist of it is that you make the deportation case public, connect with networks that can support your case/fight and making sure you know your rights in terms of the changing landscape and immigration policies. At best, this kind of research and guides help get much needed info out there to folks. I'm pretty sure that as I write this, this guide is going around on facebook, the twitters and in my case, the blogosphere. Enjoy.
