The US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) has awarded AI Justice a million dollar one year grant to expand direct legal representation services for Central American unaccompanied minor children after their release from government custody. This is part of a pilot program that targets children’s cases in eight immigration courts across the country including: Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas, Phoenix, Memphis, Baltimore, Arlington and Miami.  

AI Justice will represent children living in the South Florida area, including Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, Lee, Collier and Monroe counties.
