Immigration Interpreting & How To Find A Job When Class Ends

Especially in the context of immigration, facilitating conversation for Limited English Proficient (LEP) immigrant adults during their legal proceedings is essential. Whether it's working asylum seekers, refugees, or ESL speakers (English as a Second Language) during immigration hearings, immigration interpreters play a crucial role for those who require their services.
