Immigration Advocacy Project

ABLE’s Immigration Advocacy Project represents agricultural workers and unaccompanied immigrant children statewide.

We are providing legal assistance to people detained in the recent Ohio workplace raids. 

Our attorneys and advocates are traveling to detention centers in prisons and jails around Ohio and in Michigan.  We are working with communities and churches to staff legal clinics for families so they know their rights and protect children left behind. We are organizing pro bono attorneys to help represent some of the detainees.

We need your help to end immigrant family separation in Ohio. Our team of attorneys, paralegals and outreach workers are on the ground protecting the legal rights of the men and women arrested in the recent immigration raids in Ohio.  Immigration violations are not criminal matters – yet over 800 Ohio residents are being held in detention centers, sometimes for months and years.  Yet they have no right to an attorney.  Without legal help, they will remain jailed and face the immigration court alone.

We need your help.

With each raid, more families and community members are confused, concerned and downright afraid. With your assistance, we can expand our reach and services, and help more families affected by ongoing workplace raids.  

All gifts of $100 and higher will receive a limited edition, ABLE, Inc. Advocate decal so you can proudly display your commitment to the ABLE Immigration Advocacy Project.

Thank you.
