Immigrant rights case may go to Supreme Court

The rights of immigrants throughout the country enjoyed a significant win recently. Several federal judges in Chicago and Philadelphia ruled that the Trump administration's orders to cut funding to so-called "sanctuary cities" is unconstitutional breathing some life into the fight of many cities and counties who refuse or limit cooperation with the Department of Justice (DOJ) or Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

What should you know if you want to become a citizen in the U.S.?

If you're planning to immigrate to the United States, it's important for you to understand that there may be some delays. For instance, if your paperwork is delayed by an unusually high amount of applications, it could take longer than expected to receive information on whether or not you've received a visa. Keep that in mind if you need to apply for a renewal, since you could be arrested if your visa runs out while you're waiting for the renewal to come.

Georgia immigration panel under fire

Here in Georgia, we see local conflicts playing out around immigration issues, and those conflicts often mirror the larger immigrations conflicts going on in the political world throughout the country.

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.

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.
