Christina Chan, Officer and Director of AALAM and Assistant Attorney General at the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office, has shared with AALAM the following:
Regarding the travel ban, there are currently 3 principle sources for disseminating information and directing people to advice.
- The AGO in collaboration with CodeForBoston.org. has set up an automated recording at 855-338-2847. It is a short recording in English, Arabic, Farsi, Somali, and Kurdish that in part directs people to the masslegalhelp.org website. Because of the difficulty obtaining and coordinating up-to-the-minute translations, we have opted to have a more general advisory directing people to a website where more up to date info will be provided. As the situation begins to feel more static, we will update the recording.
- More up-to-date information about the impact of current litigation and information from airlines is provided at www.masslegalhelp.org along with the relevant court orders to download.
- Individuals and families from the 7 countries flying into Logan Airport who do not have an attorney may contact Fragomen’s 24/7 hotline at 617-903-8943 or email email@example.com to communicate with an attorney.
