Support for the District’s Immigrant Residents
This week’s final approval of the budget included passage and funding for my Immigrant Legal Service Program, which will support immigrant families affected by federal policies. The new law funds legal services for low-income documented and undocumented residents through non-profits and pro bono services. It will also train attorneys on immigration legal issues and will offer free legal advice, brief services and representation for full-time residents and students. The program will be administered by the Office of Victim Services and Justice Grants.
