Help immigrants threatened by ICE action! Harsh federal action and anti-immigrant rhetoric means anxiety and hardship for our immigrant families, friends and neighbors. In response, Cambridge Mayor Marc McGovern and the Cambridge Community Foundation have established the Cambridge Legal Defense Fund for Immigrants. Funds will help immigrants at risk of being deported who are not able to afford a lawyer. Currently, only 37% of all immigrants and 14% of detained immigrants go to court accompanied with a lawyer. The need is urgent and time is running out --make your tax-deductible gift now! https://www.gofundme.com/immigrant-legal-defense-fund
