Resources

ImmigrantInfo has created a searchable database with hundreds of links to websites which we believe are of interest to immigrants, their advocates, researchers, ESL students and ESL teachers. As a rule, our resource links are non-political and non-commercial in nature. We have assigned multiple categories to every link to assist you in narrowing down to the relevant links you are looking for. We've included a text search where you can specific keywords or phrases that are located in the Name or Description of the listing. We encourage your feedback on the database content and categories.

  • Mix and match selection criteria.
  • Entering a Keyword/Phrase will search for an EXACT MATCH in the Name or Description. You can add multiple words or phrases by separating them with a comma (i.e. If you enter "community center, multi-language", only resources that have both "community center" and "multi-language" will be found).
  • As you add more criteria, the number of Resources Found will be reduced.

  • Disclaimer: ImmigrantInfo.org does not endorse any service or organization included in our Resources database. We are not responsible for any data inaccuracies or omissions. The user assumes all risks related to any misinformation. ImmigrantInfo.org welcomes input to help keep our database current.

    'Remain in Mexico' is another brick in Trump’s invisible wall
    12-16-18 Now that President Trump has done everything he can to eliminate asylum access on the U.S. border, he is attempting to enlist Mexico’s newly minted President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, in a comprehensive scheme to block asylum seekers from gaining protection in the United States. Recent reports of negotiations over a “remain in Mexico” plan indicate that this bilateral agreement would keep asylum seekers in Mexico while U.S. immigration courts consider and adjudicate their asylum claims. UN agencies, international human rights organizations, and even U.S. government agencies have produced overwhelming evidence of the humanitarian crisis that is causing many Central Americans to flee. The violence inflicted by the gangs in Central America, and the utter failure of their governments to protect them leave these individuals and families with no choice but to flee.

    'It IS bad there': Emails reveal Trump officials pushing for immigrant protection terminations
    8/27/18 There was a simple explanation in October 2017 when a Department of Homeland Security official was asked why a memo justifying ending immigrant protections for Central Americans made conditions in those countries sound so bad. "The basic problem is that it IS bad there," the official wrote. Nevertheless, he agreed to go back and see what he could do to better bolster the administration's decision to end the protections regardless. The revelation comes in a collection of internal emails and documents made public Friday as part of an ongoing lawsuit over the decision to end temporary protected status for hundreds of thousands of immigrants who live in the US, most of whom have been here for well over a decade.
