At the Immigrant Rights Program (IRP) in Newark, N.J., our goal is to achieve policies that respect the rights and dignity of all immigrants, including a fair and humane national immigration policy.

The Immigrant Rights Program’s successful integration of legal services, advocacy and organizing has made a dramatic difference in the lives of immigrants in New Jersey and beyond by ensuring that immigrant voices are heard in policy debates, by assisting immigrants with challenging immigration cases, and by changing the narrative about immigration issues to influence policy.

We offer legal services to immigrants who are in detention, facing deportation, seeking to reunite with families, or in need of protection.

Our staff organizes in immigrant communities, training emerging leaders and ensuring that those people most affected by immigration policy are advocates for change.

The complicated political reality in Washington has expanded a system of detention and deportation that shatters families. In the face of proliferating myths and anger against immigrants, the Immigrant Rights Program responds through presentations and media work.
