In addition, we provide free immigration services to eligible lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) immigrants in asylum cases and removal proceedings. We also provide a broad range of immigration and naturalization services through our low-fee immigration clinic called the Immigrant Community Law Center.
