Immigration

MJL does not provide legal representation for immigration matters.  However, we are happy to refer you to other organizations who may be able to assist.  For a list of legal services providers in Massachusetts offering free or low-cost services to low-income individuals, visit the MIRA Coalition’s resource list at: http://www.miracoalition.org/roknav-resources-legal-services

If you do not qualify for free or low-cost services, the American Immigration Lawyers Association providers a lawyer referral service on its website: www.ailalawyer.com

Many Muslims applicants for immigration status or citizenship find that their applications are delayed beyond the normal timeframe or even denied without explanation.  Some of these delays and denials may be caused by CARRP (the “Controlled Application Review and Resolution Program”) — an unconstitutional program that delays or denies the applications of many eligible Muslim applicants.   If you believe you may have been “CARRP’ed,” call, or have your attorney call, our hotline at 857-256-1310.  MJL can connect your immigration attorney with an expert on CARRP who may be able to help them think through your options.
