Immigration Affairs

All families—regardless of immigration status—are important members of our community. We respect their beliefs and are committed to assist and support. We have compiled some resources that can help families find important information and services around Immigration. The purpose of this page is to provide general information about the rights of immigrant and refugee families, fillable emergency plans, a list of important documents for families, and resource guides. The majority of resources are available in both Spanish and English.
