Both newcomers and immigrants who have lived here for decades alike are important parts of our communities in the United States. Russian asylum seekers Sergi and Timur, and former DACA recipient and teacher Maria Elena tell their stories about how having lawyers to help them navigate the U.S. immigration system led to new beginnings that changed their lives and the lives of those around them.
