Immigrants are among the most vulnerable workers in the country, often working in hazardous industries and being frequent targets of immoral employers. Though imperfect, labor laws provide recourse and can empower immigrant and low-income workers. Immigrants are further oppressed by an immigration system that creates a culture of fear and violence through ICE enforcement, detention, and deportation.
Sur’s attorneys are experts in immigration and labor law. As Sur grows, it hopes to serve as a resource in additional legal areas in which our team has expertise including family law, school discipline, public benefits, language access, removal defense, and criminal justice. The ultimate goal of all of Sur’s work is systemic change led by the communities we serve.
