Immigration Enforcement—Advice For NonprofitsJuly 17, 2019
Originally prepared in 2017, the guide, prepared in partnership with our pro bono partners, Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP and Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, with advice by Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, is often cited as a comprehensive document on this topic, assisting members of the nonprofit community in navigating complex legal questions and provide guidance on specific scenarios.
Common questions answered by the guide include: How likely is it that immigration agents might come to a nonprofit service provider? Can a nonprofit deny immigration agents entry into its facility? What can staff tell clients during an immigration enforcement action? What should staff members do if ICE agents question them? Are there special protections for certain nonprofits based on the nature of service provided?
