Military Assistance Program

Military Assistance Program

 

Military Assistance Program

MAP is a collaborative effort between AILA and the Legal Assistance Offices (LAO) of the United States military Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps. The LAOs provide free assistance to active duty service-members and their families in order to maintain the highest level of readiness possible in the event that a military member is deployed. Recently, however, JAG attorneys have been inundated with complex immigration legal questions. To resolve these cases successfully, they often need the assistance of seasoned immigration attorneys. AILA MAP has brought these two groups together to form a truly dynamic and effective partnership.

Since the inception of this worthy program in 2008, our priority has been to provide invaluable resources, knowledgeable pro bono legal counsel, and peace of mind to these courageous men and women of the United States Armed Forces while honoring the selfless commitment which they have made to the continued protection of our nation and the freedoms we enjoy on a daily basis.

For more information on AILA MAP contact Michelle Singleton at msingleton@aila.org.  If you are interested, you may also complete the volunteer attorney application form (http://www.aila.org/File/Related/MAP_Volunteer_Application%202011-2012.pdf) and e-mail it to probono@aila.org.

This November, we are voting on the very important ballot measure 88: Driver Card for Oregon Safe Roads.  Measure 88 will allow the DMV to issue limited Driver Cards to Oregonians who aren’t eligible for a traditional Driver License, but still need a safe and legal option to get to work, church, and school. To receive get a driver card, Oregon residents will need to pass a written test, a behind-the-wheel driver test and provide proof of residence, identity and date of birth. Driver cards will be used as proof of driving privileges, but can’t be used as identification for air travel, to register to vote, or to enter a federal building.
