IMPORTA follows these basic principles:

  • ·IMPORTA has no religious, political, or ideological agenda, and welcomes clients of all ethnicities and sexual orientations.

  • Because immigrants lack knowledge of our extremely complex immigration legal system, they often become victims of pervasive fraud and incompetence that results in great financial loss and frequent deportations. Educational outreach to provide accurate information to protect immigrants from victimization is central to our work.

  • “Do No Harm” is as important in immigration legal work as it is in medicine. When we conclude that filing an application is too risky we explain the reasons to the client and then make a referral to trustworthy immigration attorneys or Accredited Representatives for a second opinion.

  • Although we do not represent clients in removal proceedings in immigration court, we work we work closely with non-profit organizations that provide representation to clients in bond hearings and in immigration court proceedings, and provide paralegal help to pro bono lawyers handling immigration cases. We also have prepared clients to represent themselves at routine “general calendar” immigration court hearings to save them thousands of dollars in legal fees while they seek the services of an immigration defense attorney.
