OUR WORK IN 2021 Hispanic/Latinx Quality of Life Resource Advisory Commission 02/22/2022 WHO ARE WE? Serving the Austin community for over 30 years - since 1987 Originally known as the Political Asylum Project of Austin (PAPA) 501(C)(3) non-profit Providing immigration legal services, advocacy, and education OUR LEGAL SERVICES... Legal Representation ● Survivors of crime & family violence ● Asylum ● DACA ● Family-based Immigration ● Deportation defense Pro Se representation ● Translations ● Legal orientation at detention centers & Immigration Court ● Coordination of pro bono representation Outreach ● Legal clinics & workshops ● Community education for immigrant community & service providers 15,000+ We empowered over 15,000 individuals with legal information and services in 2021 - in 23 counties and four federal detention centers $800,000+ Over $800,000 worth of volunteer and pro bono attorney hours leveraged to assist our clients Mrs. S lives in Austin with her husband and young daughter. Originally from Iraq, Mrs. S is a legal resident and petitioned for her husband’s residency with American Gateways’ help. During the application process, Mrs. S worked seven days a week to avoid seeking public benefits, fearful that receiving benefits would negatively affect her husband’s pending case. Her husband, an electronic and electrical engineer by trade, was unable to legally work while his case was pending. American Gateways aided Mrs. S and her husband in navigating the restrictive Trump-era public charge rule; her husband was the first-named plaintiff in a lawsuit challenging the implementation of the rule. The new administration’s reversal of the public charge rule created a path for Mrs. S and her family. Now, her husband has his legal permanent residency. ASYLUM CLINICS FOR AFGHAN EVACUEES Central Texas anticipates welcoming over 1,000 Afghan evacuees in 2022, many whom will need legal support filing for asylum.
