University of California Los Angeles students have launched a group “UCLA Law Students Against Deportation” to help detained foreign nationals at Los Angeles International Airport. With over 175 law students, the group has translated documents about refugee and detainee rights into Arabic or Farsi, gathered food and water for onsite attorneys, and compiled a list of potential translators.
Students are also working closely with the ACLU and students from other Southern California law schools. The students have prepared flyers and supported the work of attorneys from the ACLU and Public Counsel. Some UCLA Law students, with knowledge of immigration law, have been working full-time at the ACLU in Los Angeles.
