Program areas at National Immigration Law Center

Defending immigrant youth and their families - after the administration announced in september 2017 that it would terminate the deferred action for childhood arrivals (daca) program, we joined forces with allies to launch a multifaceted campaign to promote policies that increase support for immigrant youth, and provide accurate, timely information to people and service agencies dealing directly with daca's rescission. With campaign partners and other allies, we've educated advocates and policymakers about the urgency of advancing federal policy solutions that can provide as many immigrant youth as possible with long-term security without harming or criminalizing other immigrant communities. We're also co-counseling litigation to defend young immigrants' rights. And we've also promoted the need for state and local policies that preserve young immigrants' access to basic services and programs.

Promoting health and economic security - in response to efforts at the federal level to strip immigrants' access to critical programs and services that make it possible for them to lead healthy lives and thrive, as well as to restrict legal Immigration in the future so that those who might fall on hard times and need safety net support aren't allowed to make the u.s. their home, since 2017, we've been co-leading an integrated policy, legal, and communications campaign to fight back against efforts to strip immigrants' access to critical healthcare, safety net, and economic security programs. The campaign focuses on documenting the harm of enforcement policies on immigrant families' access to health and safety net programs, providing resources and guidance to advocates and service providers to help them protect their clients, and defending policy gains made in states and localities. We also analyze the legality of enacted policy changes, ...

Challenging discriminatory policies and the criminalization of immigrants - we've been co-leading litigation challenging the unconstitutional muslim ban issued in january 2017 as well as related efforts to indefinitely suspend refugee family reunification processes. Leveraging the opportunity provided by the litigation, we partnered with leaders from muslim, arab, and south asian communities to highlight the discriminatory intent of these bans, and inform a National dialogue about the impact of discriminatory policies like these on immigrants and other communities of color. We've also been co-counseling plaintiff-centered litigation to challenge Immigration detentions and raids, unreasonable searches and seizures, Immigration enforcement at sensitive locations, and unlawful deportations, and have used strategic communications and advocacy to educate policymakers about the harms of aggressive enforcement policies on families, communities, and the economy.
