Welcome to EPIC

The El Paso Immigration Collaborative, or EPIC, is an organization of immigration rights advocates from El Paso, New Mexico, and around the US dedicated to implementing a massive collaborative representation strategy in five detention centers in New Mexico and West Texas that house over 3,500 ICE detainees. Using innovative technology, EPIC connects on the ground legal services organizations with remote teams of attorneys to bring high quality representation to asylum seekers for bond and parole cases to secure their release from ICE detention. EPIC will also collect data to create space for advocacy, public policy, and litigation that will challenge the devastating norms of immigration detention and court in the El Paso region.
