About Us

Las Americas is a 31 year-old, homegrown, non-profit dedicated to serving the legal needs of low income immigrants, including refugees and asylum seekers, victims of crime, and families seeking reunification. Las Americas lawyers and staff are committed to providing legal representation to those who otherwise would not be able to afford it.

The El Paso port-of-entry sees the second highest number of people crossing into the United States by land, second only to San Diego. Since 1987, it has provided representation to more than 26,000 low-income immigrants in El Paso. Las Americas’ clients come from all over the world and Las Americas’ staff have helped clients from countries as far as Burma and Cameroon.

We strive to be an efficient organization, relying on volunteer attorneys and interns for many of our cases. We utilize all in-kind and monetary donations to provide better services to our clients, and we constantly strive to be on the frontlines of advocating for immigrant rights.

“In my years as a member of Las Americas, I have had many privileged encounters, listening to each person’s story, every one of them unique… I have come to realize that all of us can become a vital source of self-respect, hope, and encouragement.” — Sister Phyllis Nolan, longtime Las Americas volunteer
