The Immigration Clinic took on approximately 15 new clients this year, mostly representing clients in U-Visa, Special Immigrant Status Cases, and DACA. We appeared in both Immigration and State Court proceedings, and our first SIJS client was granted status. In addition to client representation, students worked with attorneys throughout the state to petition the North Carolina Judicial Standards Commission regarding judicial certification in U-Visa cases. Additional work included a meeting with local District Court judges to discuss county procedures for SIJS cases, and a screening of the film Sin Nombre, followed by a panel discussion about the journey minors take throughout Central America to come to the United States.
