The United States is a country that is comprised of immigrants from all around the world. According to the most current data, there are approximately 43.3 million immigrants living in the United States today with many more Americans who descend from immigrants themselves. However, throughout the history of this country, immigration policy has always been a point of debate. As the political discussion regarding immigration has become more hostile today, we wanted to provide a list of links and resources to assist immigrants, asylum seekers, and refugees who are seeking legal or social aid in their communities. This list is separated into different categories, including a list of local organizations here in Houston at the bottom. If you feel there are any organizations or resources that we missed or would be helpful, please contact our firm and let us know.
