How To Prepare to Ask ICE for Release on Parole

Getting released from custody to pursue asylum claims can make a huge difference.

In 2018, the ICE field office in New Orleans granted parole only twice the entire year. Following the lawsuit we filed against ICE with the ACLU in May 2019, the New Orleans ICE field office now has a court order to start properly processing parole decisions.
Individuals who are able to live with sponsors while seeking asylum are much more likely to find legal representation than individuals forced to fight their cases from detention centers.
Whether you're a friend, family member, ally, advocate or seeking asylum yourself, this webinar will walk you through the process. You can also view and download our Pro Se Guide for Parole Seekers.
