Transgender Members Of The Caravan Are Having A Hard Time Finding Sponsors In The US

Attorneys for transgender members of the caravan are rushing to find people willing to house them in the United States while their asylum cases play out in court, in hopes that the would-be immigrants won’t have to wait for months in detention for their cases to be decided. A quick release from detention for transgender members of the caravan — who, of all the caravan members, likely have the best chance of meeting US standards for asylum — depends on their having a sponsor: someone willing to house and support them financially after they’re released.  It’s turning out to be a difficult task, according to Allegra Love, an attorney and executive director of the Santa Fe Dreamers Project, which is taking on the transgender women’s cases, which Love said described as a “slam-dunk.” “They have great asylum cases, and there’s no need for them to be detained,” Love told BuzzFeed News.
