The Immigrant Defense Project (IDP) was founded 20 years ago to combat an emerging human rights crisis: the targeting of immigrants for mass imprisonment and deportation. During the past two decades, IDP developed deep expertise on how to protect and expand the rights of immigrants at the intersection of the criminal legal and immigration systems. We have remained stalwart in the defense of our vulnerable immigrant communities, family members, friends, and loved ones, rooted in the principle that no one is disposable. IDP is uniquely positioned to address the current crisis of the criminalization of immigrants.
Your support is more critical than ever as we scale up to fight back against mass criminalization, detention and deportation. IDP fortifies the frontline struggle for immigrant rights through community defense, policy reform, legal support and training, impact litigation, and by challenging the vilification of immigrants with criminal convictions through communications and advocacy.
Consider becoming an IDP sustainer. A donation of as little as $25 each month can provide us with a consistent and reliable source of funding to help us protect our victories from the current administration and fight back against the demonization of all immigrants.
