I Want To Ride My Bicycle
It’s that time again! Come celebrate the winter solstice with us. On December 15, we will be riding through Mid-City and stopping for drinks and toasts. T-shirt sales will benefit ISLA Immigration Services and Legal Advocacy.

Immigrants in the United States are not entitled to an attorney in their removal proceedings. Instead, if they cannot afford an attorney, they are forced to present their legal cases before an immigration judge on their own. This typically takes place in a foreign language, and against a trained attorney representing the government. In an attempt to even the playing field, ISLA attorneys visit detained immigrants at the Pine Prairie ICE Processing Center on a weekly basis and provide pro bono representation under a universal representation model before the Oakdale Immigration Court. Through this service, ISLA ensures that detained immigrants’ due process rights are protected and that our clients do not have to attend these hearings and present their cases on their own.
