Newcomers to this country can find its immigration laws confusing and difficult to abide by. They may not fully understand what is expected of them once they are issued a visa. They also may not be sure of what kind of work they can do and for how long they can stay. To ensure that immigrants do not break the law while they are in the country, they need to learn quickly how the laws apply directly to them.
One of the greatest things about being a member of my church is getting to meet people from all over the world. We bring missionaries in to speak for special events, and some of them bring guests from other countries with them. Last year, one man brought a woman and her child with him to an event, and they were the nicest people I have ever met. She told of her struggles at home and how she faced such extreme situations each day. Our church was able to help her get an immigration attorney and helped her stay in the country.
