In light of the recent Raid crisis, we've put together a few items to help you keep your practice running smoothly. One of the most important things to remember is that your clients are very concerned about their status and unclear about their rights. Take a moment to put yourself in the client's shoes and read through these questions. Print them out and put them near your desk to remind you of what's going on in their minds when you talk to them. Use these questions to guide your messaging on social media.
MORE HELP FOR DEALING WITH THE RAIDS
To help ease your clients mind (and slow down the incoming phone calls and messages), AMIGA has created a wonderfully detailed and thoughtful Client Letter About The Raids that you can download and customize to send to your clients.
This 4-page letter, provided in both Spanish and English, explains in details what your clients want and need to know about the raids. The main questions clients have are: "Am I at risk? What do I need to know? Is my family safe?" The letter answers these questions and more.
What you will find in the Client Letter About the Raids:
- An overview of the January 4, 2016, DHS announcement about the raids
- A summary of the 3 Removal Priorities announced on November 20, 2014
- An explanation of rights, including detailed information about the right to remain silent and what to do if ICE knocks on the door
- A guide on how to create an Emergency Plan
- And more!
