Resolving Immigration Problems
In An Honest & Responsible Manner

Will family separations at the U.S. border soon stop?

Family separation is something that has been happening on the U.S. border for years, and it often happens when families attempt to enter the country without the proper paperwork. Since this breaks immigration laws, parents end up detained on criminal allegations, while the children are simply held in another location until a solution can be found for their predicament.

Changes are expected with the upcoming transition to a new federal administration

With the election of Joe Biden as the next president of the United States, his administration has claimed they will alter this practice. They have said that family separation is likely unnecessary in most cases and that resources will be put into trying to assist those who are merely trying to improve their lives

This does not mean that immigrants hoping to come to the United States shouldn’t follow the proper channels or don’t require the proper paperwork, of course. It’s still important to do things the right way. But this change shows a shift in the mindset toward helping people immigrate legally, rather than strictly punishing them for failing to do so. 

Immigration has always played a massive role in the building of the United States. It’s the reason that there are so many different races and ethnicities in a country often referred to as the Melting Pot. It seems that the government is trying to promote the opportunities that immigration still provides so that all families can have a chance to find a new home when needed. 

Preparing for the future and your immigration case

Will the new administration stand by these claims? Only time will tell. But this clearly shows that all immigrants and their families need to pay close attention to what changes the future may hold and how these changes could impact their own options.
