The President’s “zero tolerance” policy has left residents of our community feeling unsafe, vulnerable and living in constant fear. Recent events like the forced separation of children from their parents, and immigration sweeps throughout Northern California have added to the fear and uncertainty, traumatizing adults and children in our community. Local residents can become victims if they do not know their rights. Puente bridges the knowledge gap for undocumented immigrants through regular “Know Your Rights” workshops, immigration representation through the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) representatives and immigration attorneys, and tools for self-advocacy. Puente’s behavioral health team addresses fear and trauma caused by the political climate and administration policies. Puente’s Community Resource Navigator, Laura Rodriguez, is Puente’s newest staff member accredited by the U.S. Board of Immigration Appeals. She goes directly to farmworkers in the field during lunch or break times to answer questions and screen them for immigration benefits including U.S. Citizenship, Adjustment of Status, U-Visas, DACA renewals, and other administrative services such as renewal of a green card, certificate of citizenship and more. Puente’s Promotoras Comunitarias bring “Know Your Rights” workshops to workplaces and community events. Puente worked to increase legal and immigration services for deportation relief, U-Visas and Violence Against Women (VAWA) process by advocating with local allies for funding to San Mateo County for a new Coastside immigration collaborative in partnership with University of San Francisco, Ayudando Latinos A Soñar (ALAS) and Coastside Hope.
