INFO for PATIENTS NEEDING IMMIGRATION SERVICES
RECENT ARRIVALS: Patients/families can be referred directly to SF Immigrant Legal Defense Collaborative (415) 782-8974 if they meet the following criteria:
Entered the US after 01/01/2014
Are in removal proceedings (i.e. were detained by ICE)
Are residents of San Francisco
SFILDC maintains the waitlists for both Unaccompanied Minors and Adults With Children and will connect them with a lawyer at one of the community agencies. Let patients know there will be a wait time. Patients can also go to the agencies on the attached list to request information; this may be helpful to show the immigration judge that they have been trying to obtain legal counsel if they have not been able to obtain representation by their court date. It is important for patients to attend their immigration hearing whether or not they have been able to obtain representation yet. PATIENTS WHO DO NOT MEET THE ABOVE CRITERIA: See attached list of community agencies and their procedures. DACA: Youth with DACA who will need to renew it should consult with a lawyer before renewing. If a youth has not yet applied for DACA, they should not do so. If a youth with DACA plans to travel out of the country, they should return before 01/20/2017.
