Ending Immigration Detention

We are fighting for the end to immigration detention, which comes at great cost to families, communities, and taxpayers–and great profit to private prison companies.

COVID-19 Updates

The COVID-19 pandemic is having profound impacts on the immigration detention system and the immigration courts. On this page you will find updates related to detention, release from detention, the operation of the immigration courts, and legal arguments related to COVID-19.

Meet Our Volunteers

"I reached out to a number of local and national organizations that I found in need of pro bono attorneys. Among the most responsive was the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and I realized that some of the most cutting edge and important work was being done by AILA and their partners through the Immigration Justice Campaign."

Fighting together for a fair day in court

Only 14% of detained immigrants have an attorney. We are mobilizing attorneys nationwide to stand alongside immigrants in court. Watch our introduction video here.
