Resolving Immigration Problems In An Honest & Responsible Manner

April 2014 Archives

California may benefit if changes made to increase H-1B visas

By now, most Americans have probably heard the phrase "immigration reform" more times than they can count. What may not be as well-known, however, are the wide-ranging repercussions that can be a result of delaying or denying applicants the highly coveted H-1B visas they seek. Businesses in California may suffer from lack of potential growth if these denials continue into the future.

Immigration authorities must have probable cause

A citizen of the United States cannot be detained and placed in jail without probable cause. He or she is entitled to certain rights under the constitution. In sharp contrast, some immigration authorities in California as well as other states have made a practice of asking that individuals who are believed to be immigrants be held in jail after they should have been released.

Illegal immigration doesn't keep young people from hopeful future

Imagine waking up in the middle of the night, hearing a pounding at the door. For an illegal immigrant in California, that knock could mean an unwanted trip back to his or her native country. This can affect not only adult individuals but also their kids -- the ones they were hoping would experience better lives in America through immigration. Recently, however, hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants have been given the gift of an amnesty lasting two years.

Conscientious objector in California has acquired citizenship

Readers of this blog may be interested in an update on the case of a conscientious objector in California who was initially denied citizenship ("California woman's citizenship and naturalization efforts denied," March 5). The woman said that, even if she acquired citizenship, she would not be willing to bear arms to protect the United States. She said that her personal convictions and beliefs would not allow her to participate in violence against others.
