Catholic Legal Immigration Network. Inc. (CLINIC)
The Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLINIC) was established in 1988 by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to support a rapidly growing network of community-based immigration programs.
For over 30 years, CLINIC responds robustly to recent and current changes in the world of immigration law and policy. Guided by the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, CLINIC prepares its members to meet growing demands for legal screening, protection from deportation, adjustments of status and naturalization as U.S. citizens.
The Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC) advocates for humane and just immigration policy. Its field-based network of grassroots nonprofit immigration programs (370 affiliates in 49 states and the District of Columbia) is the largest in the nation. CLINIC provides affiliates and non-affiliates substantive legal and program management training and resources, as well as advocacy support at the state, local and national levels.
