“I first heard about AI Justice during one of the worst moments in my young life. I had nobody else to turn to and was desperate for help. Through a friend I heard about AI Justice, and in less than 24 hours, they came to my family’s rescue. They helped with my sister’s situation and fought to get her released [from detention], and then they helped my family and me with our sudden deportation order.”
Brought to the U.S. as a child, in 2010 Kristina was enrolled in Miami Dade College with dreams of becoming a nurse. Then she was apprehended and detained by immigration authorities. After hearing about her case, AI Justice stepped in and successfully advocated for her release. Since then, AI Justice has represented her in immigration matters, including submitting a successful DACA application on her behalf.
Kristina said: “[AI Justice] not only helped, but also ultimately changed my life and the life of my family. I will forever be thankful.”
