Decatur issues policy limiting compliance with ICE detainers

Decatur recently took a huge step forward in protecting the rights and privileges of immigrants who may face deportation under the new immigration guidelines laid out by the Trump administration. The city manager signed off on a policy directed at Decatur law enforcement, instructing officers that they may not detain or arrest, or even transport any person if they would only do so because of a detaining order from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Undocumented family arrested awaiting infant surgery in hospital

For undocumented immigrants, the number of places that are safe spaces in America is growing smaller. During the Obama administration, law enforcement abided by policies that kept them from arresting undocumented individuals in certain locations deemed sensitive locations, such as churches, hospitals, and schools, unless special circumstances justified doing so.

DACA recipients detained at checkpoint

Many immigrant communities in Georgia and throughout the country are frightened at the moment, as news that President Trump is setting wheels in motion to discontinue the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. This is very reasonable concern, as reports of troubling action by law enforcement agencies continue to be reported.

¿Puede DACA ayudarle a asegurar la residencia para los próximos dos años?

Muchos inmigrantes de Georgia han sido capaces de aprovechar un programa iniciado por la administración presidencial anterior en junio de 2012 con el objetivo de ayudar a ciertos inmigrantes a evitar la deportación. Si bien el futuro de este programa está en duda bajo el Presidente Trump, su situación no ha cambiado. Si usted ingresó a los Estados Unidos como un bebé o un menor de edad y terminó en una situación donde los funcionarios cuestionan su estatus legal, usted puede ser capaz de detener el proceso de deportación y recibir permiso especial para continuar viviendo y trabajando aquí.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals under fire again

For many immigrant families throughout the country, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is an essential part of keeping their children safe and furthering educational and vocational opportunities. Under the program, undocumented immigrants under the age of 30 who came to America as children can apply for deportation deferrals every two years, provided that they continue to meet the requirements to qualify for the deferrals.

Who the F4 visa is for and how to go about qualifying for it

The F4 visa, also known as the Family Fourth Preference Immigrant Visa, allows the non-American siblings of United States citizens to lawfully come into the country. It allows them to bring their children and spouse into the country as well.

New bill makes it more difficult to enter the country

For immigrants here in Georgia and throughout the country, as well as those seeking to enter the United States, 2017 has been a particularly difficult year so far. The Tump administration has issued a number of directives and pushed legislation that seeks to clamp down on the flow of immigrants into the country, and in the very first days of August threw its support behind a new immigration bill co-authored by a Georgia Republican Senator. Under the new bill, a whole new set of qualifications could threaten those who hope to make a life for themselves in America.

Atlanta faces fine under new immigration law

Atlanta seems to be at the center of a number of questionable practices by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), with many immigrants reporting that ICE agents are detaining them when they attend routine check-ins with authorities. There is great public disagreement about this tactic, with some claiming that ICE is merely upholding the law. Others claim that ICE is arresting individuals who pose no discernible threat, which seems patently unjust.
