Help Immigrant Kids and Families in Mississippi

On Wednesday, August 7, nearly 680 people in Mississippi were detained by ICE in what was the largest single-state workplace enforcement action in U.S. history. Raids in Canton, Bay Springs, Carthage, Sebastopol, and Pelahatchie immediately left many families in crisis. Children suddenly separated from their parents were left confused and frightened, and many have no one to care for them while their parents are held. 


These devastated kids and families need your help. By donating, you’re supporting the critical work of the ACLU of Mississippi, El Pueblo Mississippi, MacArthur Justice Center, Mississippi Center for Justice, Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance, and the Southeast Immigrant Rights Network as each of these groups organize humanitarian support for impacted families and rebuild the lives of the children whose lives are forever changed.


  • ACLU MS promotes civil liberties by providing legal support and impact litigation for the immigrant community. 
  • El Pueblo Mississippi is organizing with the immigrant community and providing direct services to children and families in Mississippi.
  • MacArthur Justice Center is coordinating volunteer lawyers and the legal response on behalf of detained individuals and their children. 
  • Mississippi Center for Justice is organizing legal coordination for immigrant families affected by the raids. 
  • Mississippi Immigrant Rights Alliance (MIRA) is providing support services to the immigrant community and coordinating the hotline. 
  • Southeast Immigrant Rights Network (SEIRN) is providing support services to the immigrant community and coordinating the hotline.
