Living as an immigrant in Georgia or elsewhere is not without its challenges. U.S. immigration law can be quite complex and difficult to understand, especially when a language barrier is present. With regard to parental rights and issues involving children, those concerned may want to seek legal guidance in the matter to determine how best to proceed to resolve a problem.
Activists in another state have recently spoken out on behalf of parents who claim their children are being unjustly taken away from them without explanation. The group has stated that it believes the state's Department of Child Safety has acted against parents in the situation. A representative for the child welfare agency has publicly denied those allegations.
The immigrant advocates have explained that various schools, hospitals and other entities have apparently called in false accusations to the Department of Child Safety against certain parents. The parents, unaware of the complaints, have been traumatized when DCS has shown up at their doors to remove their children from their homes. One activist also said that DCS does not have available translators to communicate in Spanish; therefore, no explanations as to why the children are being taken away have been given to the worried parents.
Any concerned parent in Georgia who wants to know what options may be available under U.S. Immigration Law can address such questions through consultation with an immigration and naturalization attorney. Such an attorney would typically possess clear understanding of all governing state and federal regulations in order to help an immigrant parent gain clarification in a given situation. Retaining legal guidance is a logical choice to help determine what options might be available to fight against alleged immigrant discrimination.
