Individuals and families can face many problems as a result of their immigration status.

These barriers to your livelihood are detrimental not only to you as an individual but to our community and country as whole.

There may be steps you can take now to legally call the U.S. home for you and your family members. Even if there is no legal path for you to stay in the U.S., there are actions you can take to provide for your family in instances of detention or deportation.
