I bet you know a kid like him…

We had the pleasure of meeting Alex at a recent mobile legal clinic in a small rural town.
He’s a high school senior, his favorite class is political science, and he also plays on his school’s basketball team. Probably sounds like a lot of the kids you know, right?
Except Alex lives in fear, every day.
Because Alex was brought to this country — without papers — when he was just 3 years old. Sadly, he told us that he lives in constant fear that he will have to leave this country — which has been his home for 15 years. Like many kids, this is the only country he knows. On top of the fear, he can’t get a job to help his family, and as the end of his senior year approaches, he worries that he will never be able to go to college.
Hearing this broke our hearts. And yet, we have good news.
You see, there is a special immigration program designed to help children like Alex, called the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). But he needs the help of an attorney to complete his papers. With just one hour of free legal assistance, his life can change forever.
Won’t you join us in bringing the gift of justice to Alex and kids all around the state? Thank you!
