Everyday more than 1,000 people are deported. It is predicted that in April 2 million people will have been deported by the Obama Administration.

Updated Florence Project Pro Se Immigrant Advocacy Materials Now Available
The Florence Immigrant & Refugee Rights Project is pleased to announce that updated pro se advocacy guides for immigrants in deportation proceedings are now available for use.
The Florence Project was founded in 1989 as a legal services organization dedicated to increasing due process and access to justice for Arizona’s detained immigrants. The Project earned a national reputation early on, based in large part on its ground-breaking work developing readable guides about immigration law for people navigating the deportation process without the help of a lawyer. Over the years, these materials have been distributed to thousands of people detained in remote facilities throughout the country, and the Project has periodically added new guides and updated old ones. “I came across one of your booklets and found it very helpful, full of needed information and useful tips,” said one California detainee in a letter to the Florence Project. “I want to tell you that I appreciate the hard work you do by putting this booklet together and helping people. Thank you very much for every bit of information.”
