This training will cover the basics of the expedited removal process, the relevant legal standards, and practical tips for working with this population in a detention setting. Those volunteering will be referred to non-profit organizations coordinating representation for indigent migrants at family detention centers in Texas and New Mexico. The situation at the detention centers is evolving but volunteer opportunities should be available in the coming weeks.
