I am learning new and unexpected skills during my time in Dilley.  For example, today I drafted my first civil rights complaint, to be filed with the Department of Homeland Security.  Tomorrow I will begin outlining requests for re-interviews for women who were found to not have a credible fear of persecution during their initial interviews with the Asylum Office, but who were later identified by lawyers as having viable asylum claims.  The goal is for experienced asylum attorneys to outline the legal and factual arguments ("mentor outlines") supporting the asylum claim, and for newer attorneys and law students to turn those outlines into formal requests for re-interviews.  I'll be drafting the first mentor outlines tomorrow, which will hopefully serve as a template for the remote teams working on these requests.  As my time in Dilley draws to a close, I am sad to realize that family detention exists, and is likely to continue existing into the foreseeable future. But I'm also hopeful that the members of the CARA Pro Bono Project and the volunteers who come to Dilley each week will fight back against this injustice, and will assist these women and children - who have already suffered horrendous and unspeakable violence - to apply for the protection that they so desperately need.
