Twin Cities' New U.S. Immigration Building Lacking Bus Service

The February 10, 2014, Star Tribune reports on the planned relocation of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services field office. The article details that "hundreds of immigrants who have had an easy bus ride to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office to get green cards and visas will soon have to figure out how to get to the new federal immigration office that accidentally moved way off a bus line." Read the full article here.

ILCM's Kathy Klos helped to stop the deportation of two clients, Simon and his son Alejandro. Simon had donated his kidney to save his son's life and the deportation would have interrupted Alejandro's anti-rejection medicine and put him in life threatening danger. ILCM would also like thank Sen. Klobuchar and her staff for their hard work to prevent this deportation. Read MPR's full coverage here.
