HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – A Huntsville church hosted an orientation event Tuesday to train church personnel about immigration laws.

During the event, they explained that there is a 40-hour immigration law training approved by the US Department of Justice to prepare churches to receive recognition from the DOJ to provide low-cost legal immigration services.

“The more people that know what to do to help the immigrants, the better that we going to be here in city,” said Rosa Toussiant-Oritz, who serves as a community pastor.

She says the more people who sign up, the more affordable the program is.
