Meet our people
The migration of people from place to place is a rich and important feature of modern civilization, just as it has been throughout history. Immigration is a cornerstone of American history, and as always our economy depends on immigrants who live and work within the county.
The goal of the Immigration Office of Travis Helm is to effectively assist immigrants in navigating the complex legal immigration system of the United States, and to secure the best possible outcome for individuals and families.
