Immigration Clinic & Resources

On Thursday, July 19th, the New Jersey Reentry Corporation (NJRC) hosted an Immigration Clinic that brought together Immigrant Rights attorneys and experts to provide court involved persons within the immigrant community with legal resources. Throughout the evening, panelists thoroughly discussed immigration enforcement and the law; health, finance, and social services; identification and state action; and children, family, and visitation. The Clinic’s keynote speaker Ravi Ragbir shared his encounter with ICE and went on to discussed immigrant rights and the importance of knowing them. The community presence was both vast and humbling,  and we look forward to continue to provide the resources our community needs most.
