JFON-NE Stands With Our Immigrant Neighbors

JFON-NE Inauguration Message

We Stand With Our Immigrant Neighbors!

With this inauguration we begin a new chapter in the history of our nation. We must never forget the pivotal role that immigrants have played in making this country the land of opportunity.

Let us honor the sacrifices and contributions made by each generation of immigrants, many of whom were welcomed by the sight of the Statue of Liberty and the words written on its base: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”

Low-income immigrants with professional legal representation are three times more likely to prevail in their cases in court than if they appear alone. Our organization remains committed to our mission to welcome immigrants to our community by providing immigration legal services, education and advocacy.

We at JFON-NE pledge to stand strong and remain steadfast in fighting for justice to keep immigrant families together.
