Karla Rosario

Student Spotlight:
Karla Rosario

Since February 2020, she has been the coordinator for Project Corazon, an initiative of the Lawyers for Good Government Foundation. Rosario has been living in Brownsville, Texas, helping individuals seeking asylum as they are forced to await their court hearings from Mexico.

“We find them volunteer attorneys to help with asylum paperwork, and we coordinate the translations and psychological evaluations to produce reports for their immigration applications,” she said.

With a federal policy requiring asylum seekers to stay in Mexico, Rosario works with individuals across the border from Brownsville in Matamoros, most of whom are living in a refugee camp. According to the law, asylum applications must be filled out within one year of arriving at the U.S. border. With court delays due to the lack of judges and asylum hearings on hold due to COVID-19, refugees are not sure how long they will have to wait in dangerous conditions, and they are without essential items like medicine. There’s even difficulty knowing how many individuals need assistance.
