Limiting State and Local Compliance with Immigration Detainers: An Advocacy Overview

Over the last several years, we have witnessed a concerning increase in ICE relying on partnerships with state and local law enforcement to identify immigrants it wishes to remove from the United States. Through the Secure Communities program, for example, fingerprints taken when booking individuals charged with state or local crimes are checked against federal immigration databases. This information sharing enables ICE to investigate whether individuals in local jails might be unlawfully present or removable.

Justice For Immigrants Lenten Toolkit

Make Immigration Reform Your Lenten Promise

The Justice for Immigrants campaign, of which CLINIC is a part, has put together this Lenten tool kit for parishes and communities to use during Lent. It offers weekly resources to accompany you through your Lenten journey. The resources are designed to help you reflect on the biblical call for immigration reform, and act to impact our current political reality.

Assisting Clients in Complying with Tax Filing Requirements

Employed immigrants, regardless of status or documents used to acquire employment, are required to file taxes. Service providers working with the foreign-born can offer tax assistance preparation and support as their clients work to fulfill this federal requirement. Those without a Social Security Number can apply for an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) to use when filing taxes. Please see the federal government’s resources on applying for and using the ITIN below.  

Support CLINIC’s Efforts to Assist Immigrants

This month CLINIC is launching a campaign to support its State and Local Immigration Project.

Our Lenten Pilgrimage
