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.
As this crisis escalates to new heights, IDP continues the fight for justice for immigrants at the intersection of the criminal and immigration systems, executing a multi-pronged strategy to push back against these racist systems towards a vision of human rights for all.
Rooted in the principle that no one is disposable, IDP fights to end the current era of unprecedented mass deportation via interconnected strategies that attack the two systems at multiple points — strengthening immigrant defense through training and expert advice; challenging unfair laws through impact litigation; shaping just policies through advocacy; and empowering communities and advocates through alliance building and education, and changing negative perceptions about immigrants through communications and messaging.
