Post-Deportation Resources

RESOURCES FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE DEPORTED
Special thanks to Friends of Orange County Detainees for initiating this resource collection project!
 
Unfortunately, some of the people with whom we visit will be deported to their country of origin. This is an evolving list of resources to help CIVIC visitor volunteers and family members of people in U.S. immigration detention prepare for the deportation of their friend or loved one:
Mexico
Guatemala
El Salvador
Cambodia
Haiti
Jamaica
 
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) also publishes country sheets. The country sheets give an overview of relevant information for persons that are thinking about returning or are about to be deported to their country of origin. The information given covers various areas, such as health care, housing, education, employment, business opportunities, and transportation. Please select a continent and then a country. Then, you will be able to download a country sheet with information in different languages:
Africa
Asia
Europe
Latin America
 
If you have been deported and need to speak to an attorney about options for returning, a great place to start is with The Post-Deportation Human Rights Project, based at the Center for Human Rights and International Justice at Boston College. They provide direct representation to individuals who have been deported and promote the rights of deportees and their family members.
 
Please email CIVIC at info@endisolation.org if you have any questions or would like to add a resource to this page.
