On February 4, the American Anglican Council's Anglican Legal Society partnered with Anglican Immigrant Ministries to bring a high level overview of US Immigration Law and Policy in a brief tutorial designed for lawyers or those interested in immigration law. Anglican Immigrant Ministries wants to help lawyers take on pro bono cases within the ACNA legal aid clinics or to do research or be available for consultation. The Revs. Robert “Rusty” DeMoss and Jeff Weber, both lawyers specializing in immigration legal aid and on the board of Anglican Immigrant Ministries, present this important information for serving the immigrants within our churches and in our communities.
