HIAS Pennsylvania can only serve refugees if they are allowed into the country. We can only help support immigrants with legal services if vulnerable immigrants are given protections from the government. You can advocate for just policies for refugees and immigrants by calling your representative, protesting, and more.


This report compiles the most egregious policies attacking immigrants and asylum seekers.

How could immigration change for the better?

We’ve signed onto the 2021 Immigration Action Plan to demonstrate how to transform the nation’s immigration system.

What’s Happening in Immigration Right Now?

Do you want to advocate for your immigrant friends, family, and neighbors, but don’t know where to start? We can help!
