Tulsa University law students join organization to help children kept at Fort Sill

TULSA - If all goes as planned TU law students will represent the children at Fort Sill as their fates are determined by our legal system.

The students are part of an organization called the "Immigration Rights Project."

As the news broke about the problem at Fort Sill concerns grew about the children staying there

Faculties here at the project are concerned that the kids will be pushed through the system in an effort to reopen facilities.

“A lot of people are talking about the arrival of these children in Oklahoma and I think it's really important for the students to be able to be educated and informed about these issues so they can present another side to the story when they're out there in the community,” said Elizabeth McCormick, TU director of Clinical Education Programs.

Starting in the Fall semester students will be traveling back and forth to the facility to start offering their services.
