Benefits available to immigrants in California
While Congress has thus far been unable to pass an immigration reform bill, it is important to note that in California immigrants have access to a number of state and federal benefit programs. The National Immigration Law Center (NILC) has compiled a list of resources that they keep updated summarizing the different programs available to immigrants in California here. The resources provided by NILC detail the qualifications required for eligibility in the various programs.

If you have additional questions, please contact your labor law counsel.
