Impact of Immigration Policy

Under the current administration, there has been a dramatic shift in immigration policy, to include increased immigration enforcement, travel bans affecting mostly Muslim countries, the discontinuation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and the repeal of temporary protected status of Haitians, Salvadorans, and Nepalese (The White House, 2017).


Locate Family and Friends

Current estimates show that the Latino population is the largest minority group in the US. Restrictive immigration policy disproportionately affects the Latino immigrant community through forcible removal (deportation). Since the implementation of the “zero tolerance" policy by the Department of Homeland Security, thousands of families have been separated from each other at the US-Mexico border.  


AssurOnce

AssurOnce is a FREE safety app that can help locate missing family members due to deportation issues. With one touch of the alert, AssurOnce triggers the audio and video capabilities of any smartphone and records up to 10 minutes of near real-time footage.  This footage is transmitted to 5 lifelines of your choice, even if the smartphone is destroyed. A GPS location is also sent to your lifelines, making it easier for the user to be found during an emergency.
