From ILRC’s website:
Every family should have a Family Preparedness Plan. While it is our hope that you never have to use your plan, it is a good practice to have one in place to help reduce the stress of the unexpected. This packet will help everyone create a Family Preparedness Plan, regardless of immigration status. However, because of the additional challenges immigrant and mixed status families face, we also have additional advice for immigrants.
Cada familia debe tener un plan en caso de emergencia. Aunque nuestro deseo es que usted nunca tenga que usar este plan, es buena práctica tener uno a la mano para reducir el estrés de lo inesperado. Este paquete le ayudará a crear un plan familiar sin importar su estatus migratorio. Sin embargo, debido a los retos adicionales que enfrentan las familias inmigrantes y las compuestas de miembros con diferentes estatus migratorios, también tenemos consejos adicionales para los inmigrantes.
