ROBERTO'S STORY

After being abandoned by his father, Roberto fled El Salvador to escape gang violence and reunite with his mother who had also sought refuge in the U.S.

 

Once safely in the U.S., Roberto came to ILC for help, referred to ILC from our partner organization Completely Kids.

 

“Getting my green card was like winning the lottery, now I feel safer and protected because I won’t get deported.”

COUNTIES OF RESIDENCE

Through impact litigation, ilc is actively changing immigration laws and policies

In August 2020, our legislative priority bill LB 745 amended to LB 512 was signed into law by Governor Pete Ricketts. The bill brings uniformity to law enforcement’s receipt and processing of victims’ requests to certify certain crimes, including sexual assault and human trafficking. 


Because of ILC’s advocacy, a client of more than three years was able to apply for U-Visa status, and if the U-Visa application is approved this will provide a pathway to citizenship.
