Nilda is far from alone
She is one of over a million people living in the U.S. with open immigration cases, over 300,000 of whom are seeking asylum. Nilda, like so many others, cannot afford housing, food, clothing, and other basic necessities. Nilda must wear an ankle monitor. Nilda has a legal claim to asylum and is fortunate to have a lawyer, but most people do not have a lawyer to navigate the confusing legal maze ahead.
