The North Carolina Immigrant Rights Project (NC-IRP) is working to protect the rights of undocumented immigrants which have been put at risk by the various cooperation programs between local law enforcement agencies and Immigration and Customs Enforcement which have led to racial profiling. NC-IRP works toward this goal by representing individuals in the immigration courts on a pro bono basis, as well as organizing and educating against these programs.
