Thank you to all who participated in the October 18 Forum on immigration issues. Special thanks to Gloria Dei member Monica Dooner Lindgren, our presenter, who provides legal services to the immigrant community. Gloria Dei’s Immigrant Support Team provided an update on immigration issues and ways we are responding. Ongoing changes in our federal government’s immigration policies, along with the dampening effect of the COVID pandemic on immigration court procedures, have affected the needs of immigrants and ways we are able to be of service.
