Ms. Datta Roy shared, “I appreciated the guidance I got from the (LUM Immigration) Clinic.” She added, “I have a 13 year old son who was born in the U.S. and I look forward to sharing citizenship with him. We are settling down here. This is my country now!”

Since opening in 2014, the LUM Immigration Clinic has helped clients petition for relatives, become permanent residents, renew green cards, apply for citizenship, and obtain protection from abusers as well as reunite family members and help young people follow their dreams. The clinic also offers Citizenship Classes and Spanish Conversation Tables.

Susan Brouillette, LUM Immigration Clinic Director, shared, “during the past year we have been blessed to have six volunteers complete the training necessary to become accredited by the US-DOJ, which allows us to better meet the need for low-cost quality immigration law services within our community.”
