LGBTQ-Friendly Immigration Attorneys

Serving the City of San Diego & Surrounding Communities

Although issues related to immigration policies in the United States are prominent in the news and media, the intersection of these issues with the LGBTQ community is often ignored. The Williams Institute at UCLA estimates that 267,000 undocumented individuals identify as LGBTQ. Despite these numbers, LGBTQ immigrants are rarely covered in the media or included in conversations about immigration.

In addition to not being visible to the general public, many members of the LGBTQ community have documented and undocumented family members, partners, or friends who are impacted and directly affected by the decisions and policies made by the current administration.

Jacobs & Schlesinger LLP attorneys have considerable experience representing LGBTQ community members with family-based, employment-based, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and asylum/humanitarian applications. Our team provides legal services in a caring and respectful environment. Please refer to our resources pages on these topics.

Helping LGBTQ Immigrants in San Diego Regarding ICE Detention

We understand that many LGBTQ immigrants are forced to leave their countries of origin to escape violence and discrimination, and we know that these people can face additional dangers when detained by ICE or other agencies.

According to the Center for American Progress, transgender women are:

  • Disproportionately detained in immigration centers
  • Often housed with men
  • Disproportionately victims of sexual assault and harassment
  • Are not provided life-saving medication
  • Often put in solitary confinement
  • Less likely to win their asylum cases if they are detained

If you or a loved one has faced any of the conditions we discussed above, you should immediately contact our skilled lawyers to take legal action.
