Insurance We are faced with the unprecedented opportunity for the Body of Christ to become the most relevant institution for immigrants in the United States The Body of Christ in the U.S. needs a coordinated approach to how churches respond to this opportunity. This collaboration needs to include:
Training/Best Practices
Geographic Coordination
Pooling of Resources Body of Christ Vulnerable Immigrants VISION Mobilize and inter-connect denominations and networks of churches to provide immigrants love, welcome, and service through 11,000 church-based ministry centers Love, welcome and serve 3,250,000 of 11,700,000 undocumented immigrants Seed Money for Launch: $1.89 Million Current World Relief Office
Foreign Born Population Centers CHICAGOLAND #'s
8,000,000 people
500,000 undocumented
8,000 churches
39 Recognized BIA sites
3 World Relief offices

NEED:
61 More BIA sites
800 Information Centers Goal: Identify & empower the “safe” spots for immigrants

Purpose of the church-based immigrant ministry sites:
Friendship
Legal
ELL/Civics
Other context specific ministry Benefits for Field Offices:
•Missional: This new initiative would provide new models, skills/training, relationships, and resources to fulfill our mission as “Servant” & “Facilitator” of the Church.
•Strengthened Technical Expertise: would deepen WR’s technical expertise both in working with churches and also in implementing highly excellent programs as Agent of the Church.
•Funding: new sources of private funding will be tapped (and leveraged) to expand WR programs that have chronic funding shortfalls.
•Brand Awareness: the relevance of WR in both immigrant and non-immigrant communities will grow exponentially as we “give our mission away.” The national spotlight will continue to shine on successful models that welcome and serve the stranger, and WR will continue to be a key guide and voice for the national and local conversation around immigration.
•Church-Base Expansion: WR offices will access a significant number of untapped churches particularly among other immigrant populations (besides refugees) who could become long term partners for WR long after immigration reform is implemented.
•New Stakeholders & Leaders: New relationships that form both formally and informally through partnership, seconding, and hiring will lead to an influx of new vision, leadership, and skills for WR.

•Board of Immigration Appeals requires applicants to demonstrate a connection to ongoing legal technical support in order to become credentialed
•Immigration law is incredibly complex
•It is not possible to maintain competency without a connection to larger immigration legal networks and could be considered malpractice
•Even seasoned private attorneys maintain a connection to training, technical and peer support through the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) There are currently 930 low cost immigration legal service sites in the United States
To serve 22 million immigrants that are not yet citizens, each existing site would need to serve 23, 893 individuals
An average non-profit legal service provider handles approximately 250 cases each year
It would take this average site more than 95 years to open 23, 893 individual cases
To serve 22 million non-citizens over the next 5 years - need 17,600 sites
5.5 million undocumented immigrants with income below the poverty line
4,400 total sites are needed to serve impoverished undocumented immigrants Scope of Need for Legal Services Importance of Training and Mentoring: Chicago: as an example Church-Based legalization partnership with World Relief in 108 locations served 150,000 immigrants over 2 years - 1986
CLINIC (Catholic Legal Immigration Network) started – 1988
The creation of NIRN (National Immigration Reform Network) by World Relief in 1999
WR statement on immigration – February 2006
Gathering of denominational leaders at BWI focused on advocacy and immigration reform - May 2007
Christians at the Border book by Daniel Carroll Rodas, Published May 2008
Welcoming the Stranger book – Published January 2009
NAE statement on immigration – October 2009
Initial meeting of the Evangelical Immigration Table – Feb 2011
BIA approval for Church-Based Legal Ministry: Immigrant Hope in NY; Nazarene's in Iowa; Vineyard's in Ohio - 2011
Evangelical Statement of Principles on Immigration – June 2012
Elmbrook Church - BIA approval for Church-Based Legal Ministry - Fall 2012 Evangelicals in Immigration Legal Ministry - TIMELINE Resources for prezi as we go World Relief - Internal Conversation Identify potential church-based legal services sites and information centers to be trained
Project/pledge financial resources to seed the collaborative effort
Identify a point person to represent the denomination/network in the coalition Requested Commitments by April 8th Next Steps World Relief/NAE to receive feedback, questions, comments
April 8th - provide projected commitments
May 8th - 1st coalition gathering Chicago - tentative Many potential funding sources to provide leveraged funding for seed money commitments from evangelical denominations, networks, & churches Churches and denominations need to move quickly if we are going to be able to respond to this need
The best guess at this point is that legislation could be passed sometime around August 2013
From that point, it will probably take the Department of Homeland Security sometime around six months to draft the regulations necessary and prepare the application forms
In that case, applications could be possible sometime around February 2014.
To be able to lawfully provide assistance, church-based legal sites that do not have attorneys on staff will (based on current law) need to be recognized by the federal Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).
In past experience, it will take a minimum of about six months for individuals to undergo the necessary classroom training and on-the-job shadowing necessary to apply for BIA recognition and accreditation and to wait for the application to be considered.
Given that timeline, churches would need to be prepared to begin training almost as soon as legislation is signed Urgency Refugee Resettlement Economic Development Church
