The Immigrant Legal Defense Center is the only organization in Santa Barbara County that provides free legal services to adults and children in detention centers and removal proceedings, and community education to help immigrants understand their basic civil rights.


undocumented adults and children are in removal proceedings in the Santa Barbara County 

Immigrants in detention centers facing deportation in the US do not have the right to a public defender. Without legal representation, many will lose their case and get sent back to the conditions they are fleeing. To some, this could mean domestic violence, sexual abuse, poverty, gang violence, and death.
