Lincoln-Goldfinch Law is an immigration law firm in Austin, where our main objective is to develop legal advice tailored to your needs and circumstances. Our attorneys know from first-hand experience what it is like to be an immigrant in the U.S., the complexities of immigration law, and the uncertainty that comes with much of the process.

The situation of refugees and detention centers is getting worse and worse, places where the human rights of the people present are harmed and violated, as well as an excessive agglomeration of people in spaces that are not suitable to accommodate so many people, which is a situation that must be treated with the importance it deserves, in order to take actions that cause an immediate solution.

In this interview we address various aspects of the issue, from a legal and human perspective. We present our concerns, as well as possible solutions. Ellis Burgess is in charge of keeping the interview professional, interesting and entertaining at the same time. We present statistics, evidence and images of the refugee situation, in order to bring the message to more people and make them aware of this reality that seems very distant and unreal to us, but nevertheless, it is much more common than we think.

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.
