Who We Are

Diocesan Migrant & Refugee Services, Inc. (DMRS) is the largest provider of free and low cost immigration legal services in West Texas and New Mexico.  We provide a comprehensive range of immigration legal services including representation in family-based immigration matters, Citizenship/Naturalization matters, matters related to benefits for survivors of domestic violence and other crimes, removal proceedings before the Immigration Courts, refugee resettlement services, and services for adults and unaccompanied immigrant children detained in the local immigration detention centers and shelters.  DMRS has been serving the immigrant community since 1986.

In addition to legal representation by attorneys, DMRS also offers legal representation by Accredited Representatives.  As a recognized Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) organization, DMRS can apply for “accreditation” of non-attorneys.  Accredited Representatives may provide legal advice and representation in matters before United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the BIA and/or the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR).

DMRS serves individuals residing in eleven counties in Far West Texas, including El Paso, Brewster, Culberson, Hudspeth, Jeff Davis, Loving, Pecos, Presidio, Reeves, Ward, and Winkler counties as well as individuals residing in the state of New Mexico.
