Immigration Insights

Most immigrants who travel to the United States leave behind everything they cherish – their home, their families, their friends. They face an uncertain future when they arrive here.

They leave to begin a new life, uncertain how that life will look . . . many unaware how steep their climb will be.

Immigrants leave their homes for different reasons.

Some only seek gainful employment and hope to return home some day.

Others fleeing from social chaos or political persecution have no place to call home.

For many, there is no turning back.

Several seek to become lawful residents and perhaps U.S. citizens one day.

Before they can achieve these dreams, all will face obstacles on the road to immigration success.
