NEW! Seattle-King County Immigrant Legal Defense Network Created to Provide Expanded Immigration Representation

In response to the Trump Administration's increase in enforcement of outdated immigration laws, the City of Seattle and King County passed legislation in April 2017 authorizing a total $1.5 million to fund a network of community-based nonprofit organizations to provide FREE legal aid to immigrants and refugees in detention, facing deportation/removal, or in danger of losing their immigration status. To qualify for free Legal Defense Network assistance, your client must:
  • Be an immigrant in detention, facing deportation, or in danger of losing their immigration status;
  • Live or work in the City of Seattle or live in King County; AND
  • Have a household income below 200% of the federal poverty level.
Legal services are provided by: Northwest Immigrant Rights Project and Colectiva Legal del Pueblo (for adults and families): (206) 816-3870; and Kids in Need of Defense (for unaccompanied children): (206) 359-3266. For more information, visit:
