In 2019, NCLR was able to assist at least 15 clients get their legal permanent residency or “green cards.” These are a vital protection for our asylum and U visa clients. Legal permanent residency allows our clients greater freedom of movement and protections for their legal status in this country, and provides a measure of security that less permanent statuses do not. For many of our immigration clients, legal permanent residency lets them begin a new chapter of their lives and integrate more fully into their communities.
