Refugees In U.S Detention Centers

Published On: September 25, 2015Views: 493

Central American refugees fleeing violence in their states have found trouble at the border for seeking asylum. Immigrants in the above video explain that it would be safer for themselves as well as for their families to reside in the US. Unfortunately, the current political climate on immigration in the US has left little room for compassion from government officials.

Austin Immigration Attorney Kate Lincoln-Goldfinch comments around 1:40:

”I think the administration wants to be seen as tough on border enforcement, and is unwilling to let this one go — even in the midst of all of this obvious suffering.”

The Netherlands based news source used the following description for the Youtube Video (rough translation):

”A slap on the wrist for President Obama : Government must explain to the judge today why young illegal immigrants who come across the border have been detained. More than 2100 Latin American children – and sometimes their mothers – are caught in purpose-built detention centers. Correspondent Erik Mouthaan took a look at such a center.”

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.
