The Political Asylum/Immigration Representation Project (PAIR) is the premier provider of pro bono immigration legal services to asylum-seekers and immigrants unjustly detained in Massachusetts. In FY 2012, PAIR coordinated pro bono attorney representation that exceeded $8 million, and overall PAIR has a 95% successful outcome in its asylum cases. PAIR provides hope and a new beginning to asylum-seekers, torture survivors and immigration detainees through your help.
