For more than 30 years, CLINIC’s core value has been to welcome our immigrant neighbors through our network of committed agencies and legal representatives. Those values guide us as we move into a new phase of the COVID-19 pandemic. We recognize that challenges remain and we draw inspiration from the immigrants we serve.
As communities largely return to life as it was before the COVID-19 pandemic, operations at U.S. governmental agencies remain disrupted, leading to periodic announcements relating to modifications in policies and procedures. CLINIC will continue to track and report the changes that affect immigrant services in agencies and the immigration courts to provide you with the most up-to-date status information.
We are also advocating for measures that promote public health and safety and protect immigrants, their families and their legal representatives while agencies continue to move on to a post-pandemic phase of operations. In addition, we are closely monitoring how immigrants in the United States, abroad and at our borders continue to be affected. Please make sure to regularly check our website for these updates. Legal representatives and program managers are also encouraged to review our program management materials that address the special challenges agencies continue to face in providing legal services.
On each of the pages linked in the table of contents below, you will find a summary of policy and operational changes made due to COVID-19. Please check back frequently for updates.
