WOLA works to ensure that migrants are treated with dignity and have access to due process. It is not illegal to leave one’s country to seek protection abroad. WOLA documents the abuses migrants face on their journey through Mexico and at the border, produces materials for asylum lawyers, and supports ways for migrants who are victims of crimes or human rights violations to pursue safety and justice.
