City Mayor

Immigration​ & Refugee Resources

​​​The City of Dallas is and will remain an inclusive, multi-cultural, tolerant and welcoming place. We support the men, women and children who come to Dallas from other countries for a better life. We welcome those traveling internationally to our region to do business, visit their loved ones or attend school.  

Recent events have understandably left many residents and visitors in and around Dallas on edge. I will do everything I can as mayor to ensure that those who are most vulnerable have access to the services they may need, whether it be in City Hall or through outside agencies.  

Below is a list of immigration, refugee, legal and health service providers that may be able to help, depending on your needs.* As always, do not hesitate to contact my office directly if we can be of assistance.  

Thank you.  

Mike Rawlings 
City of Dallas
