Many of the Latino families we work with are concern about the executive orders signed on the past days, more yet, they are frightened of the uncertainty about what will come next. Be assured that ¡HICA! and its allies are closely monitoring the situation, beginning to strategize around potential policy changes, and will remain vigilant in keeping you informed.

In the meantime, we will continue to:
* Educate immigrant communities about their rights 
* Support and mobilize youth who face losing their Deferred Action protection and their ability to go to college 
* Collaborate with allies working with marginalized communities to stand in unity against hate
* Build our capacity to advocate to elected officials and policymakers 

Get involved! Stand up for inclusiveness, tolerance, dignity, and human rights.
Want to support our work?
 We are working every day to support the Hispanic families in Alabama. We know that we all have rights as human beings and we and our allies, with your help, will stand up for those rights to protect the America we all believe in. Times like these are when we need stand together as one Alabama. Will you stand with us?

 

   



 
Through the Safe Release Support Program (SRSP), ¡HICA! helps in the reunification process by serving an unaccompanied minor’s sponsor. The SRSP is a network of agencies around the nation that coordinate with Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) to serve unaccompanied migrant children (“minors”). ¡HICA! is the only designated Safe Release Support Site in Alabama to offer this service.
