Section 240A(b) of the I.N.A and other ways to help avoid removal

California residents who are faced with deportation and removal proceedings may benefit from understanding the different legal protections available that may help them avoid removal from the country. Several sections of the Immigration and Nationality Act (I.N.A.), including section 240A(b) along with several other avenues, provide immigrants with a variety of legal options to help their situation. While fighting deportation is not an easy task, it may give some immigrants comfort to know there are legitimate ways to help avoid it.

Immigration holds down in California jails

In a previous  immigration lawblog.com/2014/06/several-california-jails-will-no-longer-abide-immigration-holds.shtml">post we discussed how jails in multiple counties in California were refusing to hold immigrants for federal authorities. Assembly Bill 4, which prohibits local law enforcement agencies from holding immigrants who are considered non-violent offenders, took effect in January of this year. With this new law, the number of immigrants turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents has dramatically decreased compared to years previous, with more jails refusing to abide by immigration hold requests.

What does applying for asylum in the United State entail?

For some individuals seeking access into the country, the United States is viewed as a place of refuge. For a number of reasons, every year people enter all areas of the country, including California, seeking asylum. In order for asylum to be granted, certain specifications must be met, and set application procedures must be followed for a chance to obtain this status.

Employment immigration and professional licensing applications

The governor of California, Governor Jerry Brown, has signed several key pieces of legislation this year that will improve the lives of undocumented immigrants living in the state. The latest refers to employment immigration issues, specifically regarding professional licensing applications. This is going to be a game changer as far as the types of jobs undocumented immigrants will be able to obtain after completing their education.
