Based on CET's philosophy of self-determination, the Immigration and Citizenship Program's (ICP) mission is to provide quality immigration and citizenship services and promote and strengthen civic involvement among the immigrant population.

ICP offers support services, application assistance, and legal consultations and representation, primarily in Santa Clara County. Its staff is accredited by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and its volunteers are dedicated to serving their community.

ICP encourages the business community and local donors to support ICP's immigration integration services to aid low-income and hardworking immigrants in attaining, free citizenship classes and low-cost legal services.
