Barbara Hines On Family Detention Centers

We’ve said once and we’ll say it again: Detention centers are not suitable for people escaping crime and violence.

Barbara Hines makes several great points about family detention and the options we have as more humane alternatives.

Kate studied and worked alongside Barbara Hines before forming her own private practice as one of Austin’s most prominent immigration lawyers.

Jailing women and children is not an appropriate model for an effective and humane response to a refugee crisis. DHS must turn to trusted and experienced non-profit refugee organizations that are deeply committed to providing high-quality social and legal services to those fleeing endemic violence in Central America.

About the Author: Kate Lincoln-Goldfinch

I am the managing partner of Lincoln-Goldfinch Law. Upon graduating from the University of Texas for college and law school, I received an Equal Justice Works Fellowship in 2008, completed at American Gateways. My project served the detained families seeking asylum. After my fellowship, I entered private immigration practice. My firm offers family-based immigration, such as greencards and naturalization, deportation defense, and humanitarian cases such as asylum, U Visa, and VAWA. Everyone at Lincoln-Goldfinch Law is bilingual, has a connection to our cause, and has demonstrated a history of activism for immigrants. To us, our work is not just a job. After the pandemic we began offering bankruptcy services in addition to immigration I realized how much lack of information there is in financial literacy resources in Spanish.
