I’m originally from Cuba. When the pandemic struck, I was really worried. I was unemployed with no income, no transportation, and an expired work permit. I got in touch with IIMD to ask for their help applying for a new Employment Authorization Document. Not only did the legal team help me get the document, they coordinated with other staff to deliver food and collect signatures for the legal documents without me even having to leave my house. They also told me that under the Cuban Adjustment Act, I was eligible for a Green Card, and they helped me apply free of charge. Now my Green Card has been approved, and I just found a job. From the beginning to the end, I really 100% appreciated everything they did. They helped me with everything. Sometimes you go places for help and they’re in a bad mood. The staff at IIMD was always in a good mood, efficient, professional, kind and on time.
