New Frontier Client Spotlight: Araceli
For New Frontier client Araceli, life in the United States didn’t start out in a good way. “I actually know Hillary in part because of an attorney, Adam, who helped me when I was detained in Eloy, Arizona.” Like many who come here from her home country of Mexico, Araceli found herself imprisoned in one of the same detention centers that regularly made headlines in the last four years. Worried about the cost and difficulty of a 9th Circuit case, Araceli needed help. And that’s when Adam, the attorney helping her, “mentioned that he had a friend who might be able to take my case.” As you can guess, that friend was our own founding attorney Hillary Walsh, and that’s how Araceli ended up becoming a New Frontier client!
It became clear that, as with many of our clients, Araceli probably met the requirements for an asylum case, as well as a U Visa case. “Hillary helped me with both,” Araceli says. Often, we find it’s best to pursue multiple avenues for a client in case one option or another doesn’t work out. This was Araceli’s situation. Years later, her life is much more stable, and that’s common for our clients, as well. We don’t want anybody living in fear or with a weight hanging overhead. It’s not fair to have to live that way, and it makes it hard to progress forward. Araceli has made progress. “I was able to take back my two oldest children from my mother,” she says. “Things have really calmed down, and now I’m focusing on my work permit — all thanks to attorney Hillary!”
