Embracing the ideal that all people have a right to equal access to justice, American Gateways provides the legal and educational services immigrants need to navigate our complex immigration system, join our American family, and begin new lives free of torture and abuse. Our clients are asylum seekers, victims of human trafficking, victims of family violence, long-term residents facing removal to their home countries, and DREAMers. Women, men and families from over 75 different countries have been served by American Gateways.

Founded in 1987 as the Political Asylum Project of Austin by attorneys and community leaders, today American Gateways is among the most effective and efficient non-profit providers of immigration legal services in the nation.
