What type of legal help is available in Kansas for illegal immigrants who were picked up in transit ? Ten were picked up in crowded pickup just south of Clay Center . The newspaper indicates they were then taken to Chase County to be deported.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?

This is in Kansas. i have no information on the type of pickup it was.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No . i just want to know what type of help they could have recieved before being transported to ICE in Chase County Kansas.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I don't know any thing else!

Unfortunately immigrants without valid legal status in the US are not legally entitled to legal representation. This means there is no system for assigning them court-appointed attorneys, in the way that a US citizen gets assigned an attorney in a legal case.

There are however several organizations in Kansas aimed at helping undocumented immigrants.

I can provide you with a list of them, and my recommendation would be to phone around to these organizations and find out which ones are willing or able to help in this situation.

Here is a link to the Immigration Advocates Network with a list of all of their Kansas organizations that offer legal assistance to undocumented immigrants. There are 7 organizations listed.

I hope that helps!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
