ADVOCACY ISSUE - Immigrant Justice

We fight to end the harms of the outdated and racialized federal immigration system.

ADVOCACY OVERVIEW

Immigrants in Washington state are living under an outdated and racialized immigration system that harms families, youth, children, and workers. Across Washington, many immigrants are denied access to the state’s social safety net. Immigrants who have lived a vast majority of their lives in Washington have almost no recourse to regularize their immigration status, leaving them in a state of constant vulnerability to deportation.

Columbia Legal Services fights efforts that attempt to demonize or shame immigrant families facing poverty. We support community partners pushing to end the harms of the outdated and broken federal immigration system.
