The DCBA Immigration Law Committee will be coordinating a humanitarian effort Monday, January 30, 2017 to help those immigrants detained at O’Hare Airport as a result of the recently imposed ban on immigrants.
We will be meeting at the Mevorah Law Offices Bloomingdale Office (134 N. Bloomingdale Road, Bloomingdale, Illinois), January 30, 2017 at 2pm to organize and then head to O’Hare to assist the detainees.
A second group will be meeting at 7pm at the Mevorah Law Offices Lombard Office at 900 E. Roosevelt Road, Lombard, Illinois. Megan Gieseler will be guiding the second group down to O’Hare to link up with and/or relieve the first group.
I will have further information as to what assistance is needed as the situation develops, but I have been informed that the organizations can use any attorney, regardless of immigration experience (there are experienced attorneys on hand to mentor), paralegal assistance, and anyone who can translate/interpret, and that there is a need for laptops to conduct legal research and/or draft habeas corpus petitions on the fly. If you are unable to reach me via email, you can contact me or Brad Giglio at the Mevorah Law Offices Bloomingdale telephone number at 630-529-4761.
This is a great opportunity to lend assistance in an area of the law in which you may not be familiar. Click the link below for additional information.
