Millions of Immigrants to Benefit from Executive Action
Given the continued unwillingness of Congress to pass Immigration Reform, President Obama has announced a significant set of initiatives which address the struggles of the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in our country. These executive orders are only a temporary fix, but will give immediate, limited relief to those who live in the shadows. It’s a moment of celebration as we seek to advance the cause of immigrants.

Arapaho UMC Monthly Clinic an Impressive Success!
The congregation is reaching out to schools and churches in the community to make them aware of the opportunity for immigrants to begin their journey toward legal status right there in their own community. JFON already has monthly clinics at Grapevine First UMC, and hopes to add a new location in Fort Worth in the coming months.
JFON is specifically targeted to low income families and individuals, so if you know of someone who needs immigration legal services, tell them to call either the Grapevine location at 817-310-3820 or the Arapaho location at 972-231-1005 and leave a message at either number. The assistant to the JFON staff attorney will return their call and help them learn if they might qualify.
Passing on the word about JFON to those who could benefit from our service is another way you can make a difference!
And there is so much else going on at JFON DFW… check it all out!
