I have just come across an organization - Appleseed - and in reading their website, I really cannot determine for myself the realm of people they help. On the surface, it appears that they help the poor and downtrodden.
They discuss assisting immigrants.
Immigrants make valuable contributions to American communities and are often some of the most vulnerable members of our society. Appleseed works to ensure that immigrants are well served in their communities and that they are afforded the rights and opportunities they deserve. Our Immigrant Policy Program is focused on helping to improve law, policy, and practice on immigrant policy issues at the state and local levels. Our Latino Immigrants' Access to Financial Institutions project educates immigrants about financial issues and works with banks and credit unions to develop better ways to serve the unique needs of this growing market.
However, nothing in their message indicates if the people they help are illegal immigrants. I would really like to know!!
