IMPORTA is committed to the integration of Santa Barbara’s large immigrant population into the mainstream of our county's civic life.
IMPORTA believes that fluency in English and a path to citizenship are key elements in the successful integration of Santa Barbara County's immigrant population.
To facilitate the integration process, IMPORTA...
• Received authorization from the United States Department of Justice to practice immigration law and represent clients before the USCIS and other agencies of the Department of Homeland Security.
• Has provided legal representation for thousands of local immigrants in obtaining citizenship, DACA (for undocumented immigrants brought here as children), and legal status through Adjustment of Status, waivers, and asylum applications.
• Was the only organization in Santa Barbara County to receive a California state grant under the OneCalifornia program during 2016 and 2017. IMPORTA has just been awarded a OneCalifornia grant for 2018.
Additionally, IMPORTA works with other non-profit
organizations and government agencies to develop and support
• Recreational, educational, and vocational training programs for immigrant youth and
• Projects and programs that build mutual trust and cultural understanding between Santa Barbara’s immigrant community and the established non-immigrant community.
