“An Advocate's Manual for Solving Employment Problems in Louisiana and Mississippi” is a guide to help community members in Louisiana and Mississippi identify and solve employment problems. The Manual is designed to be used by both workers and social service providers and does not require any prior knowledge about employment law. We hope that the Manual will be an essential resource on employment issues for friends, family, workers, service providers, and the greater community.
Written by CLINIC and the Immigrant Legal Resource Center under a generous grant from the California Endowment, the manual is a comprehensive guide for legal advocates working with immigrant survivors of domestic abuse and crime. The manual consists of 15 in-depth chapters on VAWA self-petitioning, adjustment of status, inadmissibility and waivers, and consular processing; conditional permanent residence, VAWA cancellation of removal, special immigrant juvenile status, T and U visas, gender-related asylum, and public benefits.
Charles Wheeler, director of CLINIC's National Legal Center for Immigrants, draws from his own experience and expertise, as well as from the collective wisdom of other practitioners, to explain the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA). It encourages leaders to challenge government interpretations that are at odds with the regulation. The book is published by AILA Publications.
This book is a practical guide to all aspects of family-based immigration, including immediate relatives and the preference system, application process for permanent residence, consular processing, immigrating through marriage, grounds of inadmissibility, the affidavit of support, and other topics of concern to practitioners. It is published by AILA Publications.
