Resolving Immigration Problems In An Honest & Responsible Manner

Some deportation and removal proceedings delayed by appeals court

Illegal immigrants living in San Diego may have more hope after a recent decision by a federal appeals court. The decision delayed the deportation of seven individuals until a re-evaluation of their deportation and removal proceedings, leading to speculation that other undocumented immigrants may seek the same type of discretionary ruling, possibly allowing them to stay in the United States indefinitely. The immigrants allowed to stay for now do not have criminal records but were ordered to be deported anyway.

Immigration process affects children of deported parents

Children of undocumented immigrants living in San Diego can sometimes become lost in the system when their parents are detained or deported. Foreign-born parents of children born in the United States sometimes opt to take their children with them, but many times the children are left with relatives. Occasionally, when parents are deported back to their countries quickly, children can unfortunately wind up in foster care when relatives cannot be located.

Same-sex spouse charged with DUI in California faces deportation

When a person is charged with a drunk driving offense, her or she faces serious penalties all the way from license suspension to possible incarceration. Those consequences can be serious enough, but they do not uproot a person from everything and everyone that they know. When a person without full U.S. Citizenship is charged with a crime, they face deportation in addition to other consequences.

Man seeking asylum in California detained for 13 months

A Cuban man was scheduled for an asylum hearing recently in San Diego after being detained by U.S. immigration officials at the San Ysidro Port of Entry over a year ago. The man previously spent more than 10 years in a Cuban prison for speaking out against Fidel Castro and is once again hoping to be freed, this time in the United States. The Department of Homeland Security considers the man a threat against national security, but the man's lawyers and the American Civil Liberties Union of San Diego and Imperial Counties dispute that claim. The ACLU has sued on the man's behalf, hoping to have him released from the detention facility until a decision is made regarding his asylum application.
