Testimony from an Immigration Clinic

Immigration Task Force

August 27, 2018

Immigration clinics are usually held once a week at a public, community place like a church or a school. They are places where immigrants can go to receive assistance filling out their immigration paper work.

Rafeal García provides his witness from a summer of volunteering at an immigration clinic in New York City.
