Ohio Immigration Lawyer: Immigration Court Expands Pro Bono Program

The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) has announced an expansion of its legal orientation and pro bono program (LOP). It is extending the LOP to serve DHS detainees who are in immigration proceedings before the Barick Street Immigration Court in New York City. In addition, EOIR is currently piloting an LOP program at the Miami Immigration Court for non-detained respondents who are unable to find legal assistance and may be mentally incompetent. EOIR also has created a LOP for custodians of unaccompanied alien children.
