Gives immigrants cheap legal help with their cases
Borderwise offers the service at a cost of $500, much lower than the thousands that an immigration attorney might usually charge. There are hundreds of thousands of immigrants in the U.S. who are eligible for green cards but live close to the poverty line, and lack the resources to navigate the application process. Borderwise wants to do as much as they can to eliminate that obstacle. In a new, post-executive-order program at Borderwise, the same service is offered to low-income immigrants for only $1, with pro bono legal review. Any proceeds from the new program will be donated to an immigration nonprofit.
