November 20, 2014: Following President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration, The Immigration Alliance today announced it is expanding mobilization of evangelical Christian churches across the country to support the increased need for high-quality, low-cost immigrant legal services, with a goal of serving one million immigrants through its sites by 2020.
Today’s executive action has exponentially increased the need for trustworthy, authorized legal services to foreign-born, non-citizens living in the United States. It is estimated that, based on today’s executive action, approximately five million non-citizen immigrants may be eligible to apply for benefits (such as Employment Authorization) from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
