Sioux Falls, SD—Only four private attorneys and two nonprofits offer limited immigration-related services within a 600-mile radius of the Twin Cities. Without access to affordable services, all immigrants live with the ultimate fear of deportation. I want to increase my effectiveness at coordinating legal services for low-income immigrants in western Minnesota and eastern North Dakota and South Dakota by building a sustainable and accessible network of volunteer lawyers.
