THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY DINNER GALA

celebrated the resiliency of the Immigration system in our country
and the contributions and sacrifices of legal immigrants.

For the last couple of years, when you read anything in the news about Immigration it is almost always about Illegal Immigration and The Wall. So many of the commentators are misinformed so their comments are best opinionated, or at worst, completely wrong and divisive.

 

On the other hand, we, Immigration Advocacy Services, deal solely with legal immigration and can inform you about the real system and the history of what it has contributed to the fabric of America since our country’s inception.

 

Since before we fought for our freedom from England, the United States of America has promoted a way of thinking that has included a welcome to those in the world trying to avoid persecution or that wanted to better their situation, whether, religiously, economically or socially.

 

That gracious way of thinking has led our country into the premier leadership role in the world for a good many years. Leaving out politics, whether on one side or the other,we are very proud to have been a part of our country’s Immigration system for these past three decades.
