A new project of the University of Minnesota Law School achieved a major milestone this year with a victory at the US Supreme Court. The Center for New Americans, as the project is called, is a collaboration between private law firms and nonprofits offering legal services in Minnesota.
Its clinics serve immigrants who have not received citizenship in the US, and its aims are lofty - to improve the country's immigration system case by case, step by step.
We touch base with the Center's director, a former law student who worked with the center, and a client in Worthington.
