Detention Program
The Detention Program, based on a nationally recognized legal service model, serves immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers who are facing deportation at the GEO/ICE immigration detention center in Aurora, Colorado. Since 2000, RMIAN has been working to:

  • Empower people to make informed decisions about their legal cases
  • Offer a “Know Your Rights” legal orientation presentation to every newly detained person, including potential survivors of human trafficking
  • Provide individual intakes with men and women not represented by attorneys
  • Refer meritorious cases to volunteer attorneys
  • Provide direct legal representation for detained men and women
  • Provide pro se assistance to individuals fighting their cases on their own
  • Actively monitor conditions at the detention facility to ensure adherence to federal detention policies and respect for human rights
