CAUSE (Central Coast Alliance for a Sustainable Economy) is raising funds to help the Immigrant Legal Defense Center (ILDC) provide legal representation to local immigrants picked up by ICE, separated from their families, and placed in deportation proceedings. The ILDC recruits and trains pro bono attorneys in the area to make deportation defense accessible to our community. But they cannot do this alone! Although volunteer attorneys are willing to represent an individual on a pro bono basis, the out-of-pocket expenses for representing an individual in immigrant detention (mileage and accommodations) is about $400-700 a case.
