Justice for Immigrant Workers and Families
For decades, immigrants have been among the most vulnerable workers in this country, whether they have legal status or not
As a result, much of CLUE’s advocacy work centers on accompanying immigrant families when they are in jeopardy, standing with them when they speak truth to power, and supporting policies and laws that welcome them and their contributions.
CLUE works with immigrant rights organizations on several initiatives, including training rapid responders to bear witness when immigration raids occur in our neighborhoods, visiting immigrants in detention and working to bond them out, and speaking out locally and at the state level for measures that let immigrants work and worship without police harassment, whether on our sidewalks, in our ports, or anywhere in our community.

The asylum seekers are then held in privately run immigration prisons, where they await their case decisions and have little chance of tapping any support networks or finding attorneys to represent them.
Unlike in the criminal system, people facing an immigration judge are not entitled to an attorney to represent them in court. If they can’t afford a lawyer, they face an unfamiliar system with unfamiliar laws and an unfamiliar language by themselves.
Because the family members they sought to rejoin may also not have legal status, there is often no one to visit the asylum seekers. Trained CLUE congregation members travel in groups or on their own to visit and talk with these asylum seekers, to provide a listening ear and an understanding heart.
