212(c) waivers and other available deportation remedies

Immigrants currently residing in California and in other states across the country may, at some point, find themselves in need of relief from deportation. The deportation and removal process is, understandably, frightening, as families are often ripped apart and lives are totally changed. There are a number of defenses that can be utilized to stall and/or stop the deportation process. Applying for 212(c) waivers, if eligible, is just one of them.

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.

Representation for detainees is available to California immgrants

Immigrants who come to the United States face a number of challenges. These start with the hardships suffered to gain access to the country. After successfully making it onto American soil, obtaining the legal rights to stay is not an easy task. While many undocumented immigrants can live under the radar for some time, the fear of deportation is ever present. Those who are picked up by immigration enforcement may feel there is little they can do, but legal representation for detainees is available and may actually help immigrants in their fight to remain in the country -- whether that is in California or elsewhere.

Section 240A(b) of the I.N.A and other ways to help avoid removal

California residents who are faced with deportation and removal proceedings may benefit from understanding the different legal protections available that may help them avoid removal from the country. Several sections of the Immigration and Nationality Act (I.N.A.), including section 240A(b) along with several other avenues, provide immigrants with a variety of legal options to help their situation. While fighting deportation is not an easy task, it may give some immigrants comfort to know there are legitimate ways to help avoid it.

What are deportation and removal proceedings?

There is a relatively large group of immigrants in California, many of whom have constant fears about the possibility of being deported. It is certainly understandable that those facing deportation and removal proceedings may have numerous questions regarding what these proceedings entail. It is important to note that every case is different and laws may vary slightly depending on individual circumstances, but some basic procedures typically apply to most cases.

Representation for detainees to be offered to immigrant children

As an influx of immigrant children continue to enter states all across the country, including California, government officials are looking for ways to offer them the protection for which they have come. These children are coming without parents and most do not have family support in the country. A bill recently introduced in Congress would provide legal representation for detainees, namely these children, in an effort to provide them with the support they desperately need.

Asylum claim is last hope to disrupt harsh deportation laws

A man who came to the United States with his mother at age two, and who speaks only English is sitting in an immigration prison while appealing an order for his deportation. And, although his mother became a citizen, his eight younger siblings are all citizens, and his wife of 33 years and their four children were all born in California, he never went through the citizenship procedure. So far, the courts have denied his asylum claim.

Deportation and removal proceedings possible for California woman

A California resident is facing deportation and removal proceedings after police responded to complaints about her barking dogs. The woman claims she returned home with her children after grocery shopping and found the police waiting for her. She stated they scolded her about her English skills and when they asked her to show identification, they manhandled her. The police claim the woman became upset and kicked one of the officers, a claim she denies. Any immigrant facing criminal charges may be subjected to deportation and removal proceedings, so it may be in their best interests to request legal assistance as soon as possible.

California deportation and removal proceedings number may lower

Great news is being reported for California immigrants and those across the rest of the nation. The federal government has announced a shift in how it apprehends immigrants. The focus has shifted from undocumented immigrants with minor traffic offenses to those who are felons or repeat criminal offenders. The shift in policy could bring a sigh of relief for those worrying about possible deportation and removal proceedings for something as insignificant as a traffic ticket.

California immigration: Representation for detainees is a right

California immigrants accused of a crime may be fearful of being detained for an indefinite period of time or even deportation. A recent investigation conducted by a leading newspaper found some interesting statistics when it came to immigrants and crime. Thousands of undocumented immigrants convicted of serious crimes in this country have been released by federal authorities. However, while that certainly is a serious problem, numerous other immigrants who are detained never committed a serious crime, or none at all, and instead are kept in holding for weeks or even months. Representation for detainees can help immigrants who become caught up in the system and can offer them the legal defense they need.
