  • Nov 18, 2015: When God’s call to ministry helps lead to a new place to call home, through U.S. citizenship
    Nov 18, 2015: The story of my American citizenship process was somewhat complicated but also full of hope. Becoming a U.S. citizen was not part of my dreams in my younger years.

    Nov 11, 2015: Working at CLINIC’s national office sometimes gives me the impression I am in the engine room of a great ocean liner. My coworkers are alongside me in the boiler room.

    Nov 5, 2015: Kitsap Immigrant Assistance Center (KIAC) fulfills a dire need for immigration legal services in the West Puget Sound, a lowland area west of Seattle characterized by saltwater bays, islands, and peninsulas.  In this area, there are no other community-based organizations providing services to immigrants.  The West Puget Sound has an almost invisible immigrant population that largely goes unnoticed by service providers.  KIAC was founded in 2004 and since then has been working to assist immigrants in the West Puget Sound better their lives.    
  • Nov 3, 2015: The Evolution of the National Visa Center
    Nov 3, 2015: CLINIC recently worked in partnership with the DePaul University School of Law to help key immigration service providers in Chicago learn more about developments at the National Visa Center (NVC) and improvements to come. Overall, the engagement was a tremendous success.

  • Oct 30, 2015: Addressing Immigration Legal Needs in the Southeastern United States
    Oct 30, 2015:   Why does the Southeast need more legal service providers?

  • Oct 22, 2015: The Southeast U.S.: a Dearth of Immigration Legal Services
    Oct 22, 2015: So far, we’ve explored the rapid demographic shift of the Southeast region and the emergence of the New Latino South, demonstrating the need for more immigration legal service providers and resources.  But if the growth and impact of this community is evident and felt throughout the region, why aren’t there more legal service providers for immigrants in the Southeast in the first place?
