National Immigration Law Center CA

Since 1979, the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) has been dedicated to protecting and promoting the rights of low income immigrants and their family members. NILC has earned a national reputation as a leading expert on immigration, public benefits, and employment laws affecting immigrants and refugees. Our extensive knowledge of the complex interplay between immigrants' legal status and their rights under U.S. laws is an essential resource for legal aid programs, community groups, and social service agencies across the country. Through policy advocacy, impact litigation, and education, NILC has secured fair treatment in the courts, preserved a safety net for the vulnerable, and opened opportunities for immigrants seeking to support and nurture their families.
