Safe Passage succeeded in helping two brave children obtain Legal Permanent Resident status in the United States. Safe Passage helped their aunt become their legal guardian and J and F file for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status. One week ago, the kids received their Green Cards.
Safe Passage has helped ensure J and F will now have a safe and stable future. J told Safe Passage that he, “either wants to become a lawyer or a professional soccer player, and his sister wants to become a doctor.” Both kids said that they promise to continue to make Safe Passage proud and offered their legal team an open invitation to attend their respective college graduations, which will take place in 2019 and 2020.
J an F’s legal team consisted of Safe Passage Pro Bono attorney, Kevin Page, Director of Legal Sevices, Gui Stampur, IJC Fellow, Carlos Valenzuela, and Equal Justive Works Fellow, Lauren Blodgett.
