2016 Spring Undergraduate Internship Opportunity: American Civil Liberties Union Foundation- Immigrants’ Rights Project, New York City

2016 Spring Undergraduate Internship Opportunity

American Civil Liberties Union Foundation- Immigrants’ Rights Project, New York City

For nearly 100 years, the ACLU has been our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States.  Whether it’s ending mass incarceration, achieving full equality for the LGBT community, establishing new privacy protections for our digital age, or preserving the right to vote or the right to have an abortion, the ACLU takes up the toughest civil liberties cases and issues to defend all people from government abuse and overreach. With more than a million members, activists, and supporters, the ACLU is a nationwide organization that fights tirelessly in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C., for the principle that every individual’s rights must be protected equally under the law, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability or national origin. The Immigrants’ Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) seeks applicants for Spring Undergraduate Internships in New York, starting in January 2016.

Stipends are available for those students who do not receive outside funding and/or course credit. Arrangements can be made with educational institutions for work/study or course credit.

OVERVIEW

The Immigrants’ Rights Project (IRP) is a national project of the American Civil Liberties Union with offices in New York and California. The internship will be in our New York City office. Using targeted impact litigation, advocacy and public outreach, the Project carries on the ACLU’s commitment to protecting the rights and liberties of immigrants. In federal district and appellate courts, including the Supreme Court, the Project conducts the nation’s largest impact litigation program dedicated to defending and expanding the rights of immigrants, enforcing the guarantees of the Constitution, and achieving equal justice under the law.

The Project has focused on challenging laws that deny immigrants access to the judicial system, impose indefinite and mandatory detention, and constitute discrimination on the basis of “alienage” by governmental and private entities. In addition, the Project has been challenging constitutional abuses that arise from immigration enforcement at the federal, state, and local levels, including litigation against worksite and home raids, local anti-immigrant employment and housing laws, and improper enforcement of federal immigration laws by local sheriffs.  IRP’s efforts in the enforcement arena seek to ensure the constitutional protections of the Fourth, Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, combat racial profiling arising from actual or pretextual immigration enforcement that subjects immigrant communities to racism and hostility, and challenge government policies and practices that undermine or deny immigrants’ ability to effectuate their existing legal rights.
