Come to this training for volunteers who are interested in consulting with immigration detainees on their deportation cases at Tensas Parish detention center.
Loyola’s Immigration Law Section conducts a monthly “Know Your Rights” legal orientation program for immigration detainees at Tensas Parish Detention Center in Waterproof, Louisiana. It is believed that there are close to 4,000 non-citizens currently detained in several remotely located detention centers in Louisiana. As immigrants are not entitled to appointed counsel, almost 80 percent of the detainees are required to defend themselves in the adversarial immigration court system. Therefore, this program serves the only opportunity that many detainees have to educate themselves about U.S. immigration law and the immigration court system.
