CPM Attorneys Team Up to Help Children from Guatemala

CPM’s Camilo Artiga-Purcell and Shauna Madison are representing two unaccompanied minors from Guatemala on a pro bono basis to obtain permanent status for the children in the United States. Due to rampant drug and gang violence in Central America, there has been a huge influx of immigration by unaccompanied minors to the United States. These children are detained at the border and processed by the Department of Homeland Security. Many of these children are in need of legal representation to navigate through expedited proceedings: the “Rocket Docket.” CPM, in partnership with CARECEN, which provides legal services to Latino, immigrant, and under-resourced families in the San Francisco Bay Area, is committed to doing its part to advocate for these at risk children.
