Georgia immigration arrests have increased sharply

It is easy to get overwhelmed by fear and rumors, especially when you fear for your security. In recent months, many immigrant communities have faced difficult times while news reports that Immigration and Customs Enforcement were increasing deportations throughout the country and here in Atlanta. Unfortunately, the stories of this increase in arrests and deportation are now being validated with hard numbers.

According to a report by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, arrests of unauthorized immigrants throughout Georgia and North and South Carolina is up by a staggering 75 percent compared to the same time period last year. This is sharply above the 38 percent overall increase in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrests throughout the country. By the numbers, the news looks quite concerning. ICE agents made a total of 4,246 arrests in Georgia and the Carolinas between January 20 and April 29.

If you have concerns about your safety and the security of your family in light of this troubling news, do not hesitate to reach out to an experienced attorney who understands how to fight for your fair treatment and the preservation of your rights. When you enlist the help of an immigration attorney, you add a layer of protection over yourself and your family.

These are truly dangerous, sometimes frightening times for immigrants in the United States, but there is no use in giving in to fear or hopelessness. It is easy to look at these figures and fear that you will hear ICE agents knocking at your door any moment. Instead, you can begin building a strong defense to protect yourself and your family with the guidance of an experienced attorney who is committed to protecting your rights and freedom.
