SUBSCRIBE AND STOP A DEPORTATION TODAY!

Hello, it's your friendly neighborhood immigration lawyer*--stopping deportations by day; analyzing, teaching, and writing about U.S. federal immigration law and policy by night--with a chance for you to better understand immigration in and to the U.S. while also helping me stop deportations.

WHAT IF I TOLD YOU that I could personally provide you with bulleted rundowns of the best facts and arguments for and against the immigration issues you care about *every* week?

AND WHAT IF THOSE SUMMARIES CAME STAPLED TO A LAVISH TEXTUAL BUFFET of curated immigration news from dozens of credible sources, personal stories from the front lines of the fight against Trump's deportation machine, and punchy takes on what it all means and why you should care?

WHILE ALSO DONATING 100% of your subscription fee above $3.50 DIRECTLY TO A DESERVING NON-CITIZEN to stop a deportation on a convenient monthly basis without paying any of overhead, fees, or administrative costs?

WHAT IF THESE FACT-ENRICHED ENTREES CAME WITH A FREE SIDE OF JOKES, burns, owns, dunks, and goofs piled high and served hot, fresh, and entirely at the expense of the very worst people now at large in the immigration "debate"?

WHAT IF you could get all of that FOUR times a month for only starting at only *three dollars and fifty cents*?

IF (AND ONLY IF) your answer to all of the above is "hell yeah, dude"--well, I've got you.

I've got you right here.

Every Wednesday!

*I didn't know where else to put my credentials, so:

I have specialized in asylum, deportation defense, and "crimmigration" law since 2006, and am the managing partner of Cameron Law Offices (
www.massimmigrationlaw.com), a three-attorney Boston law firm solely dedicated to the practice of immigration law. I also teach immigration policy at Northeastern University and sit on the board of the Student Immigrant Movement. I am a proud regular contributor to The Baffler (https://thebaffler.co<wbr>m/authors/matt-cameron) and my writing and commentary on immigration policy have been featured (among other places) on NPR, PRI, The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, The Washington Post, Reuters, the AP, Democracy Now!, and Open Source.


Tiers
ICE Fighter
$3.50 or more per month
I personally curate and explain the week's immigration news from dozens of public (and a few private) sources and share a little from my own experience on the ground that week in a punchy, concise, unapologetically-biased weekly email. 


I'll post previews each week of what's in the email, and then you'll have it each Tuesday. And you'll... read it, I guess? (Or you don't! Either way I'm keeping your $3.50.)



ICE Abolitionist (recommended)
$5 or more per month
Exactly the same as the previous tier, but $1.50 more! (The extra $1.50 will go toward the Deportation Defense Fund described below.)


The perfect choice for anyone who wants to read insightful and entertaining immigration commentary, but hates to pay for things in anything but exact dollar amounts. 


Patrons at this amount will also have access here on Patreon to every issue of DeportNation published since we launched on 7/11/18, no matter when they join.

ICE Melter
$50 or more per month
 Along with your subscription to the newsletter, you'll be making an anonymous $50 donation to a deserving client in my office who is behind on a payment plan on one of our existing below-market contracts. The money will be 100% DIRECTLY APPLIED to an actual legal fee on an already-existing contract for deportation defense representation and nowhere else


To be clear, this money will not be going to our general office account or used to pay office expenses--just applied directly to the billing account of a client with an existing services contract with our office (all of which are already well below market rates) who we identify as in particular need of financial assistance. (In a way, giving directly toward a client's balance in private law office like ours is a more direct benefit than giving to a legal services non-profit, as you will have the satisfaction of knowing that every dollar you give is going directly to sponsor a particular case, with nothing being used for overhead, marketing, administration, etc.)

1-800-ABOLISH-ICE
$100 or more per month
Along with the newsletter, you'll be making an anonymous $100 donation to a deserving client in my office who is behind on a payment plan on one of our below-market contracts. Again, the money will be 100% DIRECTLY APPLIED to an actual legal fee on an already-existing contract for deportation defense representation and nowhere else.


You'll also be guaranteed one scheduled phone call of up to 15 mins/month to ask questions and/or discuss anything I've written about, consult on a complex immigration law question (or dating advice, PhD thesis review, whatever really--it's your time!), hear my war stories from immigration court, or really anything else at all I can help out with. (I'm willing to roll over unused time into subsequent months, within reason.)

I'm Not Very Good With Decimal Points
$350 or more per month
Are you not totally sure about the difference between $3.50 and $350? This one's for you!


As with the tier above, your subscription fee at this level will be applied directly to the balances of deserving clients in our office who are facing deportation. Not just in a general help-us-run-the-office way, but directly to specific billing accounts  for asylum seekers, domestic abuse survivors, unaccompanied minors, and other people we wish we could afford to take on pro bono but simply can't after so many years of "low bono" practice.


Our monthly payment plans require clients to pay about $300-350  each month toward their flat-fee below-market contracts. Your donation will be DIRECTLY applied to the balance of one outstanding contract in a case of your choice (asylum, unaccompanied minor, domestic abuse survivor, etc.) each month and they will be informed that an anonymous donor has helped them out. We will send you a redacted receipt which shows their billing history and how your payment has reduced the balance.

Help Stop a Deportation
$500 or more per month

If you are willing to commit at this level, I will personally check in with you to provide a choice between a few possible cases of financially-challenged clients with a strong chance of success. Want to be sure your donation goes to an asylum seeker? A family in deportation proceedings? A domestic abuse survivor seeking a visa? A lawful permanent resident facing deportation for a minor criminal convictions? A minor child facing immigration court alone? We work with all of these, and many more. You are welcome to direct payment to one case, or request that it be spread out among several of one type. 


Like most people doing this work, we are a private law office (there is generally no non-profit money for deportation defense) and as a matter of principle we do not charge most clients market rates. (In a way, giving directly toward a client's balance in an office like ours is a more direct benefit than giving to a legal services non-profit, as you will have the satisfaction of knowing that every dollar you give is going directly to sponsor a particular case, with nothing being used for overhead, marketing, administration, etc.)


We obviously can't share names or identifying details, but I will provide a general summary of the case and let you know about the outcome once it has concluded.

You'll also be guaranteed (at your option) one scheduled phone call of up to 45 mins/month to ask questions and/or discuss anything I've written about, consult on a complex immigration law question (or dating advice, PhD thesis review, whatever really--it's your hour!), hear my war stories from immigration court, or really anything else at all I can help out with. (I'm willing to roll over unused time into subsequent months, within reason.) 


To be clear: YOUR ENTIRE DONATION WILL BE APPLIED DIRECTLY 100% TO EXISTING BELOW-MARKET CLIENT AGREEMENTS AND NOTHING ELSE. We will send you a redacted copy of the contract that you are paying toward together with a billing history from our system reflecting your donation. The client will be informed that an anonymous donor has helped them out.

Fund An Entire Deportation Case!
$1,000 or more per month
Same as above, but all of the money that you are committing will go toward paying the entire balance in a case of your choice--effectively allowing you, and you alone, to sponsor one deserving person's fight against deportation. Once the balance has been paid, we will agree on another case to apply your donations to and continue to do so sequentially for as long as you are willing to give.


At this level, you will also be guaranteed up to 60 minutes scheduled with me on the phone (or a personal meeting if you happen to live in the Boston area) with me each month to discuss the case(s) you are funding, immigration law news/analysis, and anything else at all you want to talk about.

We will send you a redacted copy of the contract that you are paying toward together with a billing history from our system reflecting your donation.

Goals
100% complete
The world does not yet have an immigration podcast which both gives you what you need to know (with jokes), but also totally owns the nativist right on the daily. (Or monthly, probably.)

But it will.
