American Immigration Council
The American Immigration Council, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is a powerful voice in promoting laws, policies, and attitudes that honor our proud history as a nation of immigrants. Through research and policy analysis, litigation and communications, and international exchange, the Council seeks to shape a twenty-first century vision of the American immigrant experience. The American Immigration Council uses the courts to demand a fair judicial process for immigrants and to stand up for their rights, uses the facts to educate the public on the important and enduring contributions that immigrants make to America, and uses cultural exchange to connect American businesses with the global market of ideas and innovation.
The American Immigration Lawyers Association
The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) is the national association of more than 15,000 attorneys and law professors who practice and teach immigration law. AILA member attorneys represent U.S. families seeking permanent residence for close family members, as well as U.S. businesses seeking talent from the global marketplace. AILA members also represent foreign students, entertainers, athletes, and asylum seekers, often on a pro bono basis. Founded in 1946, AILA is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization that provides continuing legal education, information, professional services, and expertise through its 39 chapters and over 50 national committees.
Catholic Legal Immigration Network:
CLINIC promotes the dignity and protects the rights of immigrants in partnership with a dedicated network of Catholic and community legal immigration programs.
For more than 10 years, E4FC has been committed to serving all undocumented young people—not just those who have benefited from DACA—and we will continue to do so regardless of the end of DACA. With or without DACA, undocumented young people are a beautiful, vibrant force in our U.S. culture, economy and society.
Emergency Planning for Immigrant Families: A 50-State Resource
Families at risk of deportation face challenges and difficult decisions in preparing for the possibility of being separated from one another. Planning to ensure children (as well as other dependents) and financial assets are taken care of is crucial but preparation can be complex. Each state has its own laws, legal forms and processes related to advance planning issues such as naming a guardian who is legally able to make important decisions for a child in a parent’s absence.
National Immigration Law Center
Established in 1979, the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is one of the leading organizations in the U.S. exclusively dedicated to defending and advancing the rights of immigrants with low income. The NILC believes that all people who live in the U.S. should have the opportunity to achieve their full potential. They have been at the forefront of many of the country’s greatest challenges when it comes to immigration issues, and they play a major leadership role in addressing the real-life impact of policies that affect the ability of low-income immigrants to prosper and thrive.
