National Justice for Our Neighbors is a witness to the life-threatening persecution that many LGBTQI immigrants face based on sexual orientation and gender identity, which propels many to flee their home countries and seek refuge in the United States.

We at National Justice for Our Neighbors remain steadfastly committed to providing immigration legal services to all immigrants and refugees, without regard to race, religion, ethnicity, ideology, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Central Washington JFON is OPEN for business! 
They’re using temporary quarters while their office space is being built, and they haven’t had anything like a Grand Opening yet, but Max Olarsch, site attorney for our new JFON Site in Central Washington State, already has a full caseload. And he’s only been on the job since February.

“We haven’t advertised at all, “ says Max, shown below hard at work on behalf of his clients. "It’s all been word of mouth.”
It’s a sure indication of the urgent need for access to immigration legal services in this beautiful and rural part of the state.

"Most of our clients work in the cherry or apple orchards, farm production, or processing,” Max explains. “There just aren’t a lot of other options out here for them." 


The DREAM and PROMISE ACT of 2019 would provide permanent protection and a pathway to citizenship for immigrants with Temporary Protected Status (TPS), Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) estimated total of 2.5 million friends, colleagues, and neighbors who have made America their home.
