Immigration Translators by Cal Interpreting and Translations

Has Someone You Know Been Detained by ICE?

We provide K’iche’ interpreters to assist with nationwide immigration court proceedings including in California. Our services include but are not limited to spoken translation, written translation of documents, affidavits, declarations, and other legal documents for individuals who speak only K’iche’. We also offer free consultations so that you may learn more about our services before making a decision.

Deported Migrants

A K’iche’ translator is an important part of the US government’s legal process. This is because many people are detained at US borders, and they cannot communicate with border agents without a translator. And when immigrants are in immigration courts, they cannot answer to judges without a translator as well. Without the services of these translators, immigrants have suffered deportation by judges who can’t understand their responses due to a lack of communication between parties involved in the trial.

The New York Times has reported on cases where K’iche’ speakers have been deported as a result of not having translators for them during court proceedings. An interpreter could have saved them from deportation if their attorney had oral translation available for them what was being said in English. The Los Angeles Times has also written about K’iche’-speaking immigrants who were deported.

In one case, a K’iche’-speaking woman was detained by border agents and then transferred to an immigration detention center. She had no translator with her when she appeared before the judge, so she couldn’t communicate what happened to her at the border or why she was being detained. The woman was deported to Guatemala despite the fact that she had a valid work permit.

In another case, a K’iche’-speaking man appeared in immigration court without a translator and was immediately deported because he couldn’t answer any questions posed to him by the judge.

These cases are just a few examples of how important it is to have K’iche’-speaking translators for government proceedings.

In addition, all interpreters working for CIT meet the highest quality interpretation standards possible through our own proprietary quality grading system.
