The Episcopal Church has a long tradition of walking alongside immigrants. As we continue this work, we must understand the legal and technical categories of immigrants that include refugees, asylum seekers, and undocumented and documented immigrants. Trinity Church Wall Street stands in solidarity with all of our immigrant neighbors, especially those facing raids, deportations, and deplorable conditions at our nation's border.
Below are resources from our partners for those seeking legal counsel, direct services, and other immigration assistance efforts.
