A group of 10 bilingual immigrants began offering emotional support this week to undocumented aliens in Colorado detention centers with a program that helps them get in touch with their families. The program, known as Colorado AID, is a project of the Denver office of the American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker organization.
The Protect Yourself from Immigration Raids booklet, produced by CASA of Maryland, and distributed by AFSC, is available in English and Spanish. It is important that everyone know their rights when confronted by immigration authorities.
