CLINIC is happy to announce an important new resource for affiliates concerned about the ways in which state and local governments may be participating in the enforcement of federal immigration laws. There are a number of programs through which Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Department of Justice (DOJ), and other federal agencies recruit state and local law enforcement officials to help conduct immigration enforcement.
If your program is a CLINIC affiliate, you have access to free technical assistance through our toll-free hotline 888-399-2546 to consult with expert immigration attorneys who train and mentor affiliates. Contact our CLINIC attorneys who are available five days a week at the hotline and online to answer all your immigration-related questions.
