CLINIC Welcomes Revised Waiver Guidelines, Seeks Revisions

Washington, DC (April 2, 2012) - [En Español] - The Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC) is pleased that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has issued its proposed rule related to pre-adjudication of unlawful presence waivers for certain family members. The proposed rule permits spouses and minor/unmarried children of U.S. citizens to apply for and receive a provisional waiver of their unlawful presence in the U.S. before leaving this country for the processing of their immigrant visas. Prior unlawful presence in the United States is one of the most common grounds of inadmissibility under our nation’s immigration laws. Individuals seeking to legalize through a family petition have been able to apply for a waiver, but only at the time of their consular processing abroad. For that reason, the current process has caused prolonged family separation as individuals await adjudication of their waiver application in their home country.

LawLogix and CLINIC have entered into a multi-year partnership to provide immigration case management software to CLINIC’s large and growing network of non-profit legal services providers. Under the terms of the agreement, LawLogix will provide CLINIC affiliates across the U.S. with value added benefits including custom user training and certification programs.  For more on the new pricing discounts and programs exclusively available to CLINIC members and subscribers) and for information on how to become a CLINIC affiliate, click on the aforementioned links in orange.

CLINIC LAUNCHES STATE AND LOCAL IMMIGRATION POLICY MAP

Washington, DC (February 10, 2012) - [En Español] - The Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC) today launches a new, interactive web feature highlighting state and local immigration initiatives across the country.  

This feature is publically available for free, thanks to a grant from the Ford Foundation.

In 2007, CLINIC created a project to support advocates working to address the growing number of restrictionist immigration measures proposed and enacted at the state and local levels. After the collapse of comprehensive immigration reform in 2007, approximately 500 immigration-related bills were introduced by state legislators. By 2008, the number of proposed immigration-related bills had tripled to 1,562.  In 2011, legislatures in all 50 states considered at least one measure related to immigrants, the most notably being the legislation enacted in Arizona.
