Immigration status is an integral part of a Child in Need of Care (CINC) case for children who have no status. As stakeholders, it is important for us to understand the reasons children without immigration status are in our state and the barriers they may face. There are pathways to lawful status that may be available, for example, Special Immigrant Juvenile (SIJ) status. Come learn about how we can best work together to assist these children.
