Prevent Immigration Scams
As debate about immigration reform continues in Congress, it's more important than ever for immigrant communities to beware of scams. Even well-meaning helpers can put immigrants at risk of deportation or prevent them from getting a visa or citizenship in the future. The wrong help can hurt.

Only two kinds of people are allowed to help with immigration cases:

1. immigration lawyers
2. representatives at nonprofit organizations who are 
     accredited by the Board of Immigration Appeals

Everyone else is breaking the law and potentially putting people at risk.

Churches Can Help
Disciples can play a key role in educating our communities about how to avoid immigration scams and get good legal help.

U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services has new educational tools available in several languages. Learn more about how churches can help individuals with immigration problems and find legal help.
