Amigos Center
With immigration status of many immigrants in the news lately, I wanted you to hear about one of the 1,392 immigration clients our Amigos Center helped in 2016. Ada was brought from Mexico to the United States by her parents without legal documents when she was 11 years old. Our Amigos Center immigration office helped her after having lived here without legal documents for over 15 years. Ada is a beneficiary of the 2012 change in U.S. immigration policy that allowed allows certain undocumented immigrants who entered the country as minors to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit. Ada is making the most of this opportunity to provide a living for herself and her young son by working as a CNA at a local medical facility. Her ambition is to become a Registered Nurse.
