    May 16, 2014: As the nation’s largest network of nonprofit immigration legal programs, CLINIC’s network currently consists of 250 affiliates with 340 office locations in 46 states and continues to grow.  Even as CLINIC’s network expands, however, there are still not enough immigration programs to meet the need for low-cost immigration legal services.
  • May 13, 2014: "To All in Rome"
    May 13, 2014: As I have just returned from my time in the Holy Land with Bishop Dominic and the grand gathering of members of the “Neocatechumenal Way,” and the double canonizations of now Saints John XXIII and John Paul II, I turn to the opening words of St. Paul’s letter to the Romans (written short years before his own martyrdom in Rome c. AD 64-67) where he says “To all in Rome, beloved of God and called to holiness, grace and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
  • May 8, 2014: Remembering Mothers, Honoring Peace
    May 8, 2014: Mother’s Day was established in 1914 by President Woodrow Wilson for the purpose of remembering mothers and honoring peace. Peace begins at home and while this is true for most people, it is not true for everyone.

    May 6, 2014: CLINIC is proud to be a part of an eleven-agency collaboration that is building capacity while preparing for comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) in California.  This 11-agency group is called Ready California (RC).  We are particularly inspired by the steps taken on behalf of participating organizations to take strong immigration programs and make them ready.  Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Monterey (CCDM) is one such program that has gone above and beyond to enhance the region’s ability to serve a larger number of clients with greater efficiency.

    Apr 25, 2014: This Sunday, April 27th, we join the global celebration of the canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II.  In this historic moment, we witness the sainthood of spiritual leaders who embodied the Church’s most dearly held values.  Popes John XXIII and John Paul II worked tirelessly for vulnerable groups and shared the timeless principles of human dignity, family unity, and solidarity on behalf of at-risk migrants.

  • Apr 20, 2014: An Easter Reflection
    Apr 20, 2014: Revelation 7:9-10 After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”  
  • Apr 10, 2014: The Impact of Bad Deportation Practices on Migrants
    Apr 10, 2014: The evening “Angela,” a woman in her early thirties, arrived at the shelter for women and children in Nogales, Mexico she was desperate to reunite with her husband “Tino” with whom she had traveled North two weeks before.  The couple traversed the Sonora desert together and crossed the border successfully, but were picked up at a Border Patrol checkpoint in Arizona only days after entering the United States.  The pair was separated upon apprehension and that was the last Angela saw of her husband. Angela described her husband to other migrants and service providers.
