Seattle Irish Immigrant Support
Seattle’s Irish Immigrant Support Group supports Irish Immigrants in Western Washington who need assistance of any kind, whether because of drug or alcohol abuse, spousal abuse, work problems, family issues, visa problems, problems with the INS or the Police – whatever the problem, free advice and referral assistance are available by calling 253-237-2811 or by emailing SIISG @ old.irishclub.org.
No questions will be asked that you don’t want to answer,and complete confidentiality is promised.
We also organize regular Irish Senior Luncheons throughout the year in the Seattle area and all Irish Seniors and their spouses or significant others are invited to attend.
POSSIBLE CHANGES IN IMMIGRATION LAW
Following the November 2016 election, immigration laws and regulations may change. If they do, Irish Immigration Centers across the US are committed to answering questions from concerned individuals. But please remember the incoming Administration can make no changes to immigration policy until January 20th, 2017 at the earliest.
