Sanctuary jurisdictions fight, try to comply with Trump orders

Sanctuary cities and counties in California and across the nation are struggling with confusion and disarray as they deal with anti-sanctuary measures undertaken by the Trump administration. There are approximately 200 sanctuary jurisdictions in the nation. They, and some jurisdictions that do not have sanctuary policies, risk losing federal funding if they don't comply with administration orders on cooperation between local law enforcement and immigrantion authorities.

LAPD: 911 calls by Latinos are down. Fear of immigrantion hassles?

The reason the State of California and many of its cities and counties have passed so-called "sanctuary laws" is a strong belief that immigrantion enforcement and local law enforcement do not mix.

Immigration bill to increase permanent residence for skilled work

It may be one of the more endearing nicknames we've seen in a while: dubbing the Congressional supporters of immigration reform as the 'Gang of Eight' has a somewhat nostalgic ring to it, especially if you're a baby boomer remembering terms and phrases popular back in the sixties. More importantly, the federal immigration bill, if passed, would impact California positively and would expand opportunities for temporary work visas and permanent residence for high-skilled workers from overseas. This would help satisfy the enormous demand in the country for skilled and high tech workers.

California citizenship: Help sought after lengthy separations

California families and others across the nation are appealing to Congress to ease the restrictions on bars that keep their loved ones out of the country. Bars occur when someone undocumented is going through the citizenship process, but gets caught crossing the border from their country back into the United States. One representative has called the punishments cruel because it separates families and forces one parent to raise the children alone.

California immigration: felony deters citizenship pursuit

Millions of immigrants took advantage of a 1986 law that allowed them the right to gain a green card. While many of those people received temporary status, some failed to pursue formal citizenship due to a fear that mistakes in their youth would prevent them from being eligible. One man that was part of the 1986 immigration program did not pursue citizenship because of a felony conviction he received prior to obtaining a green card. He reportedly lied to a border agent about his status after he tried to reenter the United States at the California border.

Citizenship and naturalization easier for Asians in California?

Newest census numbers in California show rising numbers of Asian immigration within the state. Over the past decade, there has been an immigration shift, leading to their numbers overtaking other ethnicities entering the state. The citizenship and naturalization process may be full of red tape, but for them, the wait seems to be worth it, especially because of the current job market. The sharp rise in immigration is linked to their educational backgrounds and desire to work. Others come into California searching for investment opportunities.

California has high immigration numbers; Is there room for more?

The topic of immigration has lately been a hotbed of controversy from both sides of the political spectrum. While both political parties have differing opinions about the topic, one thing remains certain. The United States may be friendly to legal immigrants, but other countries far surpass this country in immigration when the numbers are looked at as a percentage of the total population.

California immigrants seek license, path to permanent residence

California immigrants who have met all of the state's requirements for practicing law may be interested in the campaign of an organization called the DREAM Bar Association (DBA). Their goal is to help undocumented immigrants realize their dreams of being able to practice law in this country. They also hope the campaign will not only help them with their professional dreams, but also pave the way for permanent residence.

California seems to relax towards immigration policies

The state of California has seen a shift in immigrant tolerance in recent years, highlighting a dramatic change in attitudes from almost 20 years ago. Based upon past patterns of voting, California was once quite intolerant of immigration. This is evidenced by a 1994 vote on Proposition 187, which barred undocumented immigrants from public schools and hospitals.

California work visa: Study shows positive effect from immigrants

A surprising new study shows that while immigrants in this country have had a slightly negative impact on wages for American employees who compete with them, overall they made quite a positive impact on the American economy. While the news is good, it may not help California immigrants struggling to receive a work visa. Still, one economist believes that the wave of immigrants entering into this country from 1990 to 2007 actually increased the national income per worker.
