Alex Mintz / Emerson Argueta


Alex and Emerson are law students that work for the Immigration Advocacy Project, providing free legal representation for women and children fleeing violence in Central America.  These non-criminal families are held in a federal detention center/camp in rural Dilley, Texas that is next to a high security prison.  The IAP helps prepare refugees for the complex and uncertain process of seeking asylum.
