Immigrants and refugees are our neighbors, friends, and the essential workers who hold our communities together in times of crisis. Over the past year and a half, the COVID-19 pandemic has upended all of our lives, but new Americans have simultaneously had to adapt to rapidly fluctuating immigration policies. This year, we've seen many changes in immigration policy, from rapid adjustments of the refugee cap to the full reinstatement (and subsequent hold on) the DACA program. And we expect even more change in the year to come, as the federal government discusses proposals to create a pathway to citizenship for DREAMers, individuals with Temporary Protected Status, immigrant farmworkers, and other undocumented immigrants.

In 2021, the work that ILCM has done for the past 25 years and will continue to do is more important than ever before. In the midst of upheaval, we have adapted our services, ensuring that Minnesota's immigrants and refugees continue to have strong advocates in their communities. 

Your support on Give to the Max Day 2020 enabled ILCM to: 

-Provide legal services in 3,793 different cases; 

-Serve clients from 106 different countries;  

-Work with 146 pro bono attorneys who donated more than a reported 3,460 hours of legal service; and  

-Reach over 24,000 individuals through virtual education presentations and outreach 

Your gifts supported DREAMers to renew their status and continue working and supporting their families.  Your donations supported survivors of violence in obtaining protection from deportation. Your support permitted ILCM to quickly and nimbly respond to the ongoing needs brought on by the COVID-19 crisis.

Your support during Give to the Max Day 2021 will specifically support our work with refugees and asylees.

Refugees are people who have fled war, violence, conflict or persecution and have crossed an international border to find safety in another country. Refugee status is defined and conferred by international law. Asylees are those who have arrived in the United States to seek protection. They cannot legally become asylees until they arrive. ILCM supported over 300 cases involving refugees, asylees, and their families in 2020. With the Biden administration's decision to increase the refugee cap to 125,000, we hope to work with many more refugees in the years to come.
