Lawyers: "They’re the people who save all the children”

Over 200,000 children came alone to the United States since 2014.

Over 50% percent of these immigrant and refugee children do not have attorneys to represent them in their deportation proceedings. This humanitarian crisis of Central American children at our border remains a due process crisis in which thousands of children are at risk of being returned to great harm, even death.


Who we are

How We Do It

Legal Services

We provide pro bono attorneys to represent unaccompanied immigrant and refugee children in their deportation proceedings, as well as legal screenings, and Know Your Rights presentations.

Public Education and Outreach

We work to change law, policy, and practice to ensure that unaccompanied children receive fair and appropriate treatment in the U.S. immigration system.

Regional Work

We help protect children’s rights and safety before, during, and after migration. KIND also helps children returning to their home reintegrate back into their community.

“It is truly inconceivable to expect a child to stand before a judge in a foreign country and to articulate in one minute or less why they face persecution or how they have been abused, abandoned, or neglected and how that trauma should garner them relief from deportation.” – Alexandra Hess, Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP
