Michael Hancock, Mayor of Denver, announced the creation of a fund with resources to help cover legal assistance to residents of Denver who are facing deportation procedures. “The funds will be used to guarantee these people will receive due process on their cases. The same way, these resources reinforce our basic mission of protecting entire families. We believe the immigrant community of Denver plays a vital role in our city,” said Mayor Hancock.

This fund has been created with resources provided by the City of Denver and money from the private sector. Two of the private supporters are the Rose Foundation and the Denver Foundation. The Denver Foundation will be in charge of administering the resources and is hoping to encourage other private donors to help expand the fund. The monies raised will be distributed to different nonprofit organizations that provide direct legal representation to people who are facing deportation cases. These services will be provided at no cost, or at a very low cost.

The beneficiaries 

The resources must be used to defend individuals with no previous criminal record. And they would also accept DACA beneficiaries and Special Immigrant Juvenile (SIJ) cases, asylum, U visas, T visas and victims of domestic violence. The fund will begin operations in May of this year. However, two organizations who are currently defending immigrants already received funds from the Rose Foundation and are able to take deportation case immediately.
