    New Haven Legal Assistance Stands With Our Immigrant Community

Recent anti-immigrant messaging has given members of our community reason to worry about their rights and safety in the United States.  New Haven Legal Assistance Association (LAA) supports the immigrant community during these difficult times.

It is illegal for someone to be treated differently because of their immigration status, national origin, or religion.

For more than 50 years, we have provided high quality legal services to people in the Greater New Haven area, including immigrants. We stand ready to collaborate with others in individual case representation, systemic advocacy, litigation, and activism. We will fight for the rights of our immigrant community by helping people who

⚫ are seeking asylum,
⚫ are facing deportation,
⚫ need relief under the Violence Against Women Act,
⚫ want to apply for Special Immigrant Juveniles status, or
⚫ are a victim of a crime and want to obtain immigration status.
