Pro Bono, Bilingual Legal Counsel For Separated Immigrant Families

"Two months ago, border authorities began to jail undocumented immigrants charged with crossing the border illegally, a sharp change from previous administrations' policy of releasing such accused misdemeanor offenders until their deportations could be handled administratively. Because children can't stay with a jailed parent, thousands were transferred to the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services. Since early May, 2,342 children have been separated from their parents after crossing the Southern U.S. border, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Many of these detainees are asylum seekers."

If you know of a family or child being detained, please contact Wayne Powell with more information. Mr. Powell along with a network of Immigration lawyers in Virginia are working diligently to provide pro bono, bilingual legal counsel to reunite these children with their families, and help all involved understand their rights.

Having built a multicultural legal practice for both English and Spanish speakers in need of justice, the horror of today's border situation strikes me at my core as an attorney, a father, and a grandfather. With background in helping both documented and undocumented workers manage complicated personal injury and workers' compensation scenarios for three decades, I'm confident that I have the experience necessary to help these parents obtain due process in our asylum system and safely reunite with their children. There is no place for prejudice in the justice system.

Whether you need to be reconnected with family members victim of this current situation or you're suffering an injury that is also unjust, English or Spanish speaking alike, contact Powell Law Group today to see how we can help you. From on the job accidents to defective product and auto accidents, our track record for three decades stands strong for the people we fight for.
