I provide psychosocial assessments to assist undocumented immigrants and their families. I work closely with the organization Puentes whose mission is to support migrant undocumented communities. A psychosocial evaluation is a powerful tool to assist in a fair legal representation for migrants applying for asylum or other status in the U.S.
Many immigrants are detained in migrant detention centers. These detention centers are privately run and profits include around $160 per day, per detainee (from the federal government). As Puentes puts it the”alternatives to detention cost merely ¢7 per day. Furthermore, the thousands of detainees are moms and dads and grandpas and grandmas who are gainfully employed…So when you detain one of these parents, you must factor in the burden that DSHS now has to support the US Citizen children who are now on food stamps because ICE detained their gainfully employed parents to have GEO make money.”
Further complicating this matter is the reality that detainees also do not have the right to representation which means only few can afford a lawyer and the rest are left to struggle through the application process alone.
With all of these factors considered human rights issue can evolve and the Psychosocial assessments work to give migrants and their families a voice and resolve these issues.
