Washington state announces additional $230,000 in emergency funding for immigrant legal aid
By Gabe Ortiz

"Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has announced that an immigrant rights group that is providing legal aid services to immigrant families—including parents and children that have been separated due to the Trump administration’s brutal family separation policy—will receive an additional $230,000 in emergency funding."
“The horrific separation of children from their parents at our southern border is just the latest in an ongoing effort by the president’s administration to terrorize immigrant families and those seeking asylum or refuge,” he said. “Everyone is entitled to a fair and due process, and this funding will help make sure Washington is doing everything it can to protect that system of justice for all.”
"The group, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, had already won a $1 million grant, but with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy resulting in hundreds of parents and children getting transferred to Washington state detention facilities due to overcrowding elsewhere, “families and … children need help now,” Inslee tweeted."

What a wonderful blessing that the immigrant children and their parents will be receiving, almost a Quarter of A Million More Dollars especially now when they need it the most! Thanks Be To God! When citizens realize that people are being marginalized and treated wrong by the government they immediately step in and help. That's what happened with the other money raising effort that brought in Ten Million Dollars from the original $1, 500 goal recently. In fact, so many people were donating there that their website crashed while in the process of obtaining donations it was reported.

With a concerted effort those who care start to raise money for the families and it has sure added up! Most all people have families of their own so no doubt they are putting themselves in the position of those immigrant families and their heart has so moved as to simply want to help as much as they can with their money. Many blessings to those who are contributing the money! May it continue to be donated for the children and their parents. Saying "Thank You Most Kindly!" on their behalf for such a worthwhile cause.

Trump has created a HUGE problem that is just coming to light.

Trump in changing the processing of aliens from HHS to ICE, ICE changed how an alien is identified. ICE gave aliens individual Identification numbers, but did not link familial groups.

No now people are worried that parents and child can not be matched.

If this comes out correct, Trump has created a massive cluster-fuck.

There is going to have to be an army of lawyers helping alien parents navigate the federal goverment's stone walls.

That is most unfortunate but all the more reason to raise a lot more money for their legal defense! Americans are very sympathetic to the cause and upon learning that this is happening no doubt they will continue to donate to help the immigrant children and their parents out.

$230k, lawyers are expensive.
They are! If they're going to charge a lot for their professional services they had BETTER win the cases for the immigrant children and their families! :) But all the more reason to start raising a lot MORE MONEY for the cause. To date, the latest figure is only about $15 Million collected plus the additional $230,000. That's not nearly enough for their cause! Need many more donations right away!
