Executive Orders and Message from the PAIR Staff 

Dear Friends,

We are writing to assure you that no matter what happens, PAIR is committed to its mission to serve asylum-seekers and immigrants unjustly detained by immigration. We will continue to provide legal orientation presentations in and out of detention; will expand asylum intake with the help of our law firm partners, such as Ropes & Gray; will serve as many asylum-seekers as we can; and will recruit, train, and mentor as more volunteers to represent PAIR clients.

It is a time of great uncertainty, but PAIR will do the important work that is needed to achieve justice, transparency and fairness in the immigration laws for our clients and immigrants in the greater community. If you have questions about your immigration status or are concerned about unlawful practice of law, call and speak with any staff member at PAIR. If you would like to collaborate or support our work, please feel free to contact us as well.

In solidarity,
Amanda, Amy, Anita, Courtney, Elena, Jennifer, and Seth
