The Gulf Coast Immigration Collaborative (GCIC) formed in 2020 to end imprisonment and deporations. GCIC provides detained individuals with free legal support to request their release from ICE custody. Our network of volunteers, pro bono attorneys and non-profit organizations work together in disputes with ICE in order to secure release from immigration detention.

Get Involved

Apart from material support for the project, we rely on committed volunteers to support folks detained and their families. The BorderX project of Innovation Law Lab integrates volunteer legal assistance for completing release requests to ICE, and seeks Spanish speakers and other supporters to get involved. Fill out the BorderX onboarding/application form if interested!

Contact Us

If you or someone you know is detained in Louisiana or Mississippi, and would like to be referred to our project for possible legal representation, please call one of our core partner’s hotline. At minimum, GCIC will need the following information:

  • Full Legal Name
  • A number (alien registration number)
  • Country of Birth
  • Date of Birth
  • The detention center where they are being detained

GCIC cannot guarantee legal assistance or legal representation for a case.
