Welcome

NMILC provides legal assistance to low-income immigrant families facing separation due to deportation, asylum seekers, and unaccompanied minors. Legal risks for them remain high, and – unlike citizens – they have no right to free counsel. Immigrants do face fewer social and political obstacles in New Mexico than they do elsewhere, such as the neighboring state of Arizona. By long tradition, immigrants from Mexico would travel back and forth between home towns south of the border and jobs in New Mexico. But that practice has become virtually impossible in today’s federal enforcement climate. At the same time, a seemingly unstoppable wave of violence in Mexico is driving more families to seek refuge in the United States, with New Mexico the refuge of choice for many. These trends make the work of NMILC vitally important. Learn more »
