Adrian’s Story

My name is Adrian.  I came to the U.S. from Guatemala with my parents when I was 11.  I came to the Immigration Project for help with my Deferred Action application in the fall of 2012.

The attorney who worked with me couldn’t have been better! She had a flexible schedule and was so helpful in putting together my application. I couldn’t have done it without her. I am happy to report that my application was approved on February 1st, and I received my work permit soon after. The work permit has allowed me to start looking for a better paying job, which will help me continue my studies in architecture. It has made all the difference in my life.

Deferred Action was a great opportunity for me, and the staff at the Immigration Project were so helpful and dedicated to making it happen. I am so grateful for their help.

Jorge’s Story

My name is Jorge De La Fuente and I am from Bolivia. I became a US Permanent Resident in 2009 and a US Citizen in 2011. All of these wouldn’t have been possible without the assistance I received from Immigration Project.

I had the pleasure to meet two amazing people, who are very knowledgeable of their job and always willing to help, Cristina Deutsch and Christine Howe. Thanks to these two ladies I was able to apply for residency and citizenship–meeting all immigration standards and rules, filling out the correct applications without making any mistakes, and meeting all deadlines.

These two ladies were always in contact with me throughout the whole process and available at any time for questions and clarification. I cannot think of anything but good things to say about them and the organization they work for. I am very thankful for the assistance Immigration Project provided me making my immigration experience an enjoyable and pleasant one.
