The National Immigration Law Center is dedicated to defending and advancing the rights and opportunities of low- income immigrants and their families. NILC uses an integrated approach of advocacy, litigation, and communications strategies to advance its mission. Over the past three decades, NILC has gained national recognition for its innovative approach to landmark litigation and its political savvy, both in Washington, DC, and across the country, and for its bridge-building role.
NILC has been at the forefront of recent efforts to thwart state-level anti-immigrant attacks and promote a road to citizenship for immigrants who are American at heart. As a result, the organization has grown tremendously over the last three years.
