Children pushing immigration trends higher

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported recently on a pair of parallel immigration trends on the rise. As more and more immigrant children are arrested at the U.S. border, the number of minors granted legal immigration status under the Special Immigrant Juvenile program is also climbing.

Get help with your deportation defense

Numerous immigrants residing in California are facing deportation. These individuals are granted the ability to fight removal from the country through court proceedings. However, many may not realize that they are entitled to have legal counsel present to offer a deportation defense. If you are facing deportation, you do not need to go through this alone. Help is available to you.

California immigration: How detention is hurting families

Sadly, it is pretty common practice to place California immigrants in detention centers while they await deportation hearings and/or decisions. To immigration authorities this is often deemed as necessary. Unfortunately, this practice isolates detainees from their families. It also leaves these individuals feeling that they have no right to seek legal assistance -- which is not the case.

Removal of conditional residence status based on marriage

When granted residency status in the United States, one's status may be considered permanent or conditional. One's initial residency is generally considered conditional until all requirements for permanent residency have been met. It is possible, though, for immigrants in California and elsewhere to get a removal of conditional residence status. One way to do this is through marriage.

How can an attorney help with deportation defense and appeals?

Unfortunately, there are numerous immigrants in California who are facing deportation or have failed to receive the immigration status for which they have applied. These individuals may be disheartened and feel that they have few options left in fighting to remain in the country. Whether needing a deportation defense or wanting to appeal an immigration decision, an experienced attorney may be able to help.

Immigration agencies sued over DACA renewal failure

A young woman in another state has filed legal claims against United States immigration agencies over a denied DACA renewal request. She claims that her petition was denied due to her work as an immigration activist, both in her local area and across the country. This is certainly something other individuals in California and elsewhere may have to deal with if they are arrested for their roles as immigration activists.

Millions await SCOTUS immigration decision

Millions of immigrants were thrilled when the president signed an executive order that would help many avoid deportation. Unfortunately, about 25 states challenged the order in court, preventing approximately four to five million people from taking advantage of the proposed program. The immigration issue is now being heard by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS), and numerous immigrants in California and across the country are eagerly awaiting the final decision.

Immigration and accusations of marriage fraud

Getting married to a U.S. citizen is just one way that some immigrants try to gain access to the country and obtain permanent residence status or even citizenship. Immigration laws are very strict, however, regarding gaining certain statuses through marriage. Marriage fraud is a real thing, so anyone in California or elsewhere who is seeking to gain citizenship, green cards or any other immigration status through marriage needs to be ready to deal with questions about his or her relationship.

Police charge woman with immigration fraud

A woman in California has been charged with giving legal advice to immigrants without the proper license. The staff members at her immigration consulting firm in Los Angeles are also facing criminal charges. These charges have been made possible after several clients came forward to authorities to complain about the business.
