ICDI is proud and thankful to receive this recognition award!

ICDI provides direct services, clothing, housing, and guidance to help newly arrived migrants better navigate the US systems. We envision and advocate for an end to detention and other unjust immigration policies.

How it all Started

How it all Started

On a snowy morning in January of 2007, Royal Berg an immigration lawyer, and two Catholic Sisters of Mercy – Sr. JoAnn Persch and Sr. Pat Murphy –  stood outside the Broadview Immigration Staging Center and discovered the horror of family separations because of deportation. The experience of that day compelled them to be present every Friday at 7:15 am and to attempt to get inside to pray with those being deported.

Then ICDI was born.
