IMPORTA's work is based on our belief that our immigrant communities have a right to affordable, honest, and high quality immigration legal
services to further their full participation in American economic and civic life.
Who We Are
IMPORTA was the first non-profit organization in Santa Barbara County to receive authorization from the U.S. Department of Justice to practice immigration law through trained "Accredited Representatives."
Our Accredited Representatives have the full backing and counseling of a staff of 15 experienced immigration attorneys from the CLINIC legal network, the largest immigration legal network in the United States.
Thanks to a grant from the State of California, during the past two years IMPORTA has provided legal representation to more DACA, naturalization, and green card applicants than any other provider of legal services in Santa Barbara County. Most of IMPORTA's immigration legal services are offered free of charge.
