Immigration Student Group (ISG)

The Immigration Student Group (ISG) seeks to connect students to the local immigration law community and to the immigrant rights movement. ISG coordinates regular volunteer trips to family detention centers in Texas and to Tijuana, Mexico to provide legal support to immigrants and families at critical points in the asylum process. ISG also organizes students to provide remote support for immigrants pursuing release from immigration detention through the BorderX program, connects students with local volunteer opportunities, and organizes lectures about current events in immigrant rights and immigration law.
