“Recently, we have started to conduct screenings through our new videoconferencing capability, made possible with the equipment purchased with our Las Patronas grant. The implementation of videoconferencing has proven to be an effective and promising development as it allows staff and/or volunteer attorneys to screen clients faster without having to go down to CCA (the maximum security detention facility at the border). Additionally, getting pro bono interpreters for various languages has been a challenge. Videoconferencing allows volunteer interpreters to call in from home or come to the Law Center instead of traveling up to two hours round trip to Otay Mesa. Already the new equipment is speeding up this process and increasing the number of screenings in 2013.”
