Resolving Immigration ProblemsIn An Honest & Responsible Manner

Representation for detainees is available

Thousands of immigrants continue to cross the border into the United States or even choose to stay well beyond when their visas expire. These individuals are often detained in detention centers in California or elsewhere until their cases can be heard by immigrantion judges. Few may realize, though, that representation for detainees from an experienced immigrantion attorney is available to assist them with their cases.

It was recently reported that there has been another surge of immigrants entering the country. So far this fiscal year, nearly 28,000 unaccompanied minors are said to have been detained by immigrantion authorities. Another 32,000 immigrants traveling in family units have also been detained. Most of these people are claiming violence and poverty as their reasons for leaving their native countries. Others allegedly say they want to enter the immigrantion system before the presidential election this fall.

Currently, there are 800,000 cases waiting to be heard by immigrantion judges. Many of those individuals waiting are being held in immigrantion detention centers. Some, however, have been released to family members or sponsors already living in the country. Those who are kept in detention centers often feel that they are forgotten about or that they have no legal rights. This is far from the truth.

Representation for detainees in California and elsewhere is available. An immigrantion attorney can help these individuals understand their options and take the necessary steps toward obtaining the documents needed to remain in the country. Those individuals with criminal records may have a more difficult time throughout the immigrantion process, but they too may have legal options that would help them fight to remain in the United States.
