Kamal has been in detention for four months and is at immediate risk of being deported. Prerna, having lost their household’s primary income earner, was evicted from her home. Kamal and Prerna have lost their entire life-savings in the lawsuit to fight this predatory company. All Kamal and Prerna want is to recoup some of their losses by being paid the money they are owed so that they can return to their home country. The company wants them deported before they have to pay.
Unfortunately, employers using the broken and unjust immigration system to retaliate against their employees is not uncommon. Exploitation of South Asian workers through the U.S. work visa system is particularly common and often leaves workers with absolutely no recourse to fight back. Please donate to help Kamal and Prerna fight to get out of this terrible situation. These funds will help for initial legal fees to get Kamal out of detention so he can continue to fight his lawsuit.
