Steve Crofter, Executive Director of , a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation presented his group's efforts to provide a safe haven for asylum seekers and their families. They are not given government aid, cannot work, and must provide their asylum claims in court. Due to current government practices, many asylum seekers are deported without hearings, and - if they are lucky enough to avoid immediate deportation - those without sponsors are often separated, men from women, parents from children, imprisoned and made to endure a years-long, backlogged court process before asylum is granted, or denied.
