Immigrants in California deserve a real deportation defense

Millions of immigrants are hoping to qualify for the programs offered by President Obama's plan for immigration. Unfortunately, due to a court injunction, the programs outlined in the President's executive order are currently unavailable, and it is unknown if or when they will become available. In response to this injunction, several legislators have come to together and created a pamphlet they seem to believe will provide undocumented immigrants all over the country, including those residing in California, with a suitable deportation defense.

What is labor certification and how to get it?

Employers, in California or in other locations across the country, who wish to employ foreign workers are required to obtain all necessary legal documents in order to do so. Labor certification will need to be issued for this purpose and must be obtained through the Department of Labor (DOL). This is not something that is handed out to everyone, and certain requirements must be met before this certification is granted.

Meeting with immigration officer doesn't have to be intimidating

Those who are working on their immigration status will, understandably, have a lot of questions and fears about the entire process -- especially if an interview is required. Immigrants in California and across the country can seek the help of a local immigration attorney to prepare them for and provide support throughout all immigration procedures. Utilizing the experience an attorney in this field brings to the table can calm fears and prepare petitioners for every issue that may present itself.

Right to representation at deportation and removal proceedings

Outrage is the general feeling among immigration activists after it was discovered that approximately 7,000 immigrant children received orders to leave the country. While deportation is an issue that affects immigrants across the nation, including many in California, the concern about these deportation orders comes from a lack of proper due process. According to a recent report, these children were allegedly not given the opportunity to defend themselves at their deportation and removal proceedings.

Judge says thousands may get to present deportation defense

Approximately 10 individuals claim they were coerced by U.S. government officials in southern California into signing orders that expelled them from the country back to Mexico, which may be a violation of their due process rights. The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit on behalf of the individuals, indicating that they were denied their right to present a deportation defense to an immigration judge. In Aug. 2014, the U.S. government and the ACLU came to an agreement, which was recently approved by a federal judge.
