MAS IMMIGRANT JUSTICE CENTER

Muslim American Society (MAS) established the Immigrant Justice Center in December of 2009, which allows legal representatives accredited by the United States Department of Justice and the Board of Immigration Appeals to provide legal services to low-income immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers.

We are all Immigrants

Programs through MAS Immigrant Justice Center exist to provide information and legal services to individuals and families who face obstacles to family unity and/or diminished personal, social, and economic opportunities as a result of their immigration status.

MAS Immigrant Justice Center believes that all of us deserve the opportunity to improve our lives. Each year, we help ensure this opportunity for nearly hundreds of people around the United States who are undocumented, searching for stability, or seeking safety.

Our policy efforts and comprehensive services strengthen communities and empower those we serve to rebuild and transform their lives.  Because of our humanitarian commitment, MAS Immigrant Justice Center has evolved into a uniquely far-reaching institution. We partner with lawmakers and organizations to shape public policies that fit the needs of struggling immigrants, ensuring that even the most vulnerable can realize a brighter future.
