Legal Resources

HILSC strives to be a source of timely and accurate data and information about immigration in the greater Houston region.

 In general, we recommend seeking information from un-biased, reputable sources.

The Migration Policy Institute and the Center for Migration Studies are excellent sources of high-quality data about immigrant demographics and trends as well as research about changing immigration policy.

Read the reports they have done centered on Houston:

 The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at the University of Syracuse is the go-to source of current data about immigration enforcement, staffing, and spending.

New American Economy (now merged with the American Immigration Council/AIC) provides accurate data about the economic impact of immigrants at the state, county, and congressional district level.

Help us fortify the ecosystem to assist immigrants
in greater Houston.

Support co-creating a vibrant and resilient ecosystem where all immigrants, migrants, and refugees belong.
