The removal of the undocumented parents of a US citizen child can have devastating and long-term consequences for that child—they can be left without any person having the legal authority to enroll them in school or authorize medical treatment, and many will be at risk of entering the foster care system.
In partnership with various legal services agencies, Bet Tzedek Legal Services is developing Know Your Rights presentations designed to help parents understand their rights and plan for the care of their children in the event of the parent’s removal from the United States. We are also establishing clinics where parents can have simple but critical guardianship and caretaker documents drafted.
CSUN will be hosting a training for individuals interested in helping with these clinics.
