The West African Community Council (WACC) is recognized and has staff accredited by the U.S. Department of Justice to provide quality immigration services to low-income constituents. Our program is managed by renewed practitioners who have garnered over 17 years of experience in the field. We represent constituents before the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (USCIS and ICE), the U.S. Department of State, and the U.S. Department of Labor.

Through our immigration support work, the WACC is responsible for preparing all the necessary paperwork for constituents. Preparing the paperwork includes drafting legal briefs/affidavits, researching and documenting applicable case laws, translating documents, collecting supporting documentary evidence, documenting witness statements, etc. Once the paperwork is submitted, we track the progress of each case and follow-up with any further paperwork that is needed.
