On Tuesday, December 11th, 2018, at 5:30 PM, Ceiba and Esperanza Immigration Legal Services (EILS) will organize a free immigration legal screening clinic and workshops on immigrant rights and tax reform.
At the session, EILS and Ceiba will educate the community on Individuals Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs), how recent changes in tax law will affect ITIN holders, and immigrants’ rights if stopped by ICE. After the workshops, EILS, Ceiba, and a team of trained volunteers will perform comprehensive immigration legal screenings for all types of immigration relief, including asylum, family petitions, U-Visas, and VAWA.
The event will take place at Esperanza College, located at 4261 N. 5th St., Philadelphia PA 19140.
“In the wake of ‘Trump’s Tax Reform,’ there is a lot of confusion in the immigrant community regarding the coming tax season. At the session, we will inform taxpayers of tax changes that could affect them in 2019,” expressed Taylor De La Pena, Ceiba Program Coordinator.
“Unauthorized immigrants should get screened for possible immigration remedies as soon as possible, as applying for legal status and eventual citizenship is the only permanent protection from deportation,” said Alexis Duecker, Executive Director of Esperanza Immigration Legal Services.
As part of the session, Ceiba and EILS will also inform attendees of their rights if stopped by ICE.
