Provide in-person and virtual consultations with clients seeking clarity on the immigration process. Represent the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in coordinating meetings with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the United States Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM), and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) on technical legal issues. Raise especially complex cases to the appropriate agencies, i.e. USCIS, ORR, IOM, etc. Orient and consult with other volunteer lawyers assisting our legal clinic.

Coordinate immigration legal services as appropriate depending on the population at the fort. Could include hosting legal clinics with volunteer attorneys to assist with the completion of the I-485 (Permanent Residence application) for eligible cases, legal orientation programs to ensure evacuated Afghans have critical information about their options for adjustment of status, and next steps.
