Immigrants, when they set on US soil, come with dreams and aspirations of a better life. It is very often the case that these individuals or families have been uprooted from their homes and forced to leave their countries due to war and carnage or crime, and they have risked everything to build a brighter future for themselves and their generations to come. The land of the free and the home of the brave promises them just that, but just when it all seems within reach, their lives are once again threatened with upheaval. They find themselves being targeted by the very people from whom they sought refuge. This insecurity of life and future is something no law-abiding and upstanding member(s) of society should have to deal with. That’s why the dedicated team of attorneys, legal assistants, and advocates at SEVA take it upon themselves to deliver this justice to those who are denied of it simple on account of trivial differences and unfortunate circumstances. We work tirelessly to make sure no immigrant has to fight for the most fundamental human rights of safety and security on their own. SEVA was founded with the vision of helping detainees in need, and will focus all its efforts towards relentlessly trying to provide them with access to fair trial justice.
