New policies expand who may be detained and deported

Ever since the presidential election in November, immigrant communities have been on high-alert throughout the country wondering what the new administration's immigration policies will mean for them and their loved ones. Now, new policies are beginning to take shape, and many immigrants are facing the harsh reality that building a life here in Georgia and all throughout America is getting significantly more difficult.

That is not to say that there is no hope. All across the country, citizens and immigrants are coming together and pushing back against policies that seem exceptionally harsh, but it is an uphill battle. One of the primary difficulties facing immigrants at the moment is the fresh focus that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has placed on detaining and ultimately deporting individuals for what many legal defenders in the area consider to be very minor offenses.

As the new policies are taking shape, it appears that ICE is apprehending more individuals than just those who have criminal convictions. Numerous reports and testimony from Georgia immigration law professionals indicate that individuals who have charges that have yet to be resolved are also being detained.

Now, more than ever, it is vital to seek out professional legal representation. Under the new administration, at least for the time being, living as an immigrant in America means living under a microscope, and it is possible that you may accidentally violate a law that could put you in danger of detention and deportation. An experienced attorney who cares deeply about your rights as an immigrant and as a person can help you fight to protect your rights and the life you have built here with the ones you love.
