Impact litigation provides a new channel to change broken immigration laws and save individuals and families from unlawful deportation. National JFON awarded a grant to JFON-NE to spearhead impact litigation on behalf of the entire JFON network. Such cases could impact countless immigrants by creating positive legal precedent throughout the country.
