Universal Representation of Detained Persons
at the Buffalo Federal Detention Facility
The Batavia Immigration Program provides universal representation to people detained at the Buffalo Federal Detention Facility in Batavia, NY. This project is funded by the New York State Office of New Americans and was formerly known as the New York Immigrant Family Unity Project (NYIFUP). This is a “public defender” style program for all financially eligible detained people who do not otherwise have an attorney and are facing deportation.
