The San Diego Rapid Response Network
The San Diego Rapid Response Network (SDRRN) is a coalition of human rights and service organizations, attorneys, and community leaders dedicated to aiding noncitizen and newcomers and their families in the San Diego border region. San Diego is the largest land border crossing in the world and has been a highly active location for deportations, rights violations, and abuse by Customs Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The SDRRN was activated to respond to increased immigration enforcement activities within San Diego County and humanitarian issues arising at the border, including widespread family separation and unjust deportation of asylum seekers presenting at the Port-of-Entry.
The SDRRN Legal Fellow must be passionate about providing culturally-competent, trauma-informed, expert legal defense of human rights to noncitizens and newcomers in San Diego County and Tijuana, Mexico. The SDRRN Legal Fellow will have an office at Jewish Family Service of San Diego (JFSSD) and will be supervised by the JFSSD Immigration Services Director. The SDRRN Legal Fellow will also provide critical emergent intervention in support of the SDRRN.
