Green Cards For Kids program
Border Angels is launching Green Cards for Kids, a program that will provide legal representation to migrant children seeking Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS). These children are currently in custody of Riverside County. Border Angels has retained immigration attorney Fabiola Navarro who will provide legal representation to ensure these children receive the legal protections they deserve!
In 2020 alone, there have been 10,779 minors that have been placed in custody of Health and Human Services (HHS). Many of these children may qualify for a Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, which is a pathway to a green card (also known as a legal permanent residence for children that have been abused, abandoned or neglected by one or both of their parents.
Dulce Garcia Executive Director for Border Angels:
"Every child, especially those that have been neglected or abused, deserves the right to guaranteed protection.They deserve to live in a safe environment where they can thrive and follow their dreams. Border Angels is thankful for the partnership with attorney Fabiola Navarro which has given us the ability to provide these children with the assistance they need. We hope that Green Cards for Kids will help migrant children in Riverside County gain legal protection as well as hope for a better future.
