Statements from Holy Cross Ministries

Current Administration Changes

In light of the United States election results, Holy Cross Ministries would like to tell the individuals we serve, and all those in need of service, that we will continue to support you and your families in any way that we can. This outcome does not change the fact that we will diligently continue to fight for your right to live with your families here in the United States, free of fear. Please know that there are a lot of uncertainties regarding the immediate implications of Donald Trump’s presidency for immigrants and United States immigration law. We are working with other attorneys and non-profit organizations to organize public information meetings to answer questions and concerns. Once those have been scheduled we will post that information here. Finally, if you are a Legal Permanent Resident and you qualify to apply for naturalization or citizenship, we encourage you to contact us or another immigration legal service provider to begin the process.
