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.

Can DACA help you secure residency for the next two years?

Many Georgia immigrants have been able to take advantage of a program started by the previous presidential administration in June 2012 aimed at helping certain immigrants avoid deportation. While this program's future is in doubt under President Trump, its status has not changed. If you entered the United States as an infant or minor and wind up in a situation where officials question your legal status, you may be able to halt the deportation process and receive special permission to continue to live and work here.

Un cargo de felonia agravada puede cambiar su vida para siempre

Probablemente usted está muy atento últimamente, con los informes de los medios sobre asuntos de inmigración, usted puede temer que su estado en este país es inestable, en el mejor de los casos, incluso si usted está aquí legalmente a través de uno de los muchos programas de visa de Inmigración de los Estados Unidos, o incluso si ha calificado para el estatus de asilo. Usted puede tener amigos o miembros de la familia que se han enfrentado a la remoción por razones que parecen menores para usted y el resultado es la separación de sus seres queridos.

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.

An aggravated felony charge can change your life forever

You are probably looking over your shoulder a lot lately. With the media reports of immigration issues, you may fear that your status in this country is shaky, at best, even if you are here legally through one of the many U.S. Immigration visa programs, or even if you have qualified for asylum status. You may have friends or family members who have faced removal for reasons that seem minor to you and the result is separation from loved ones.

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.

The Employment First category gets you to the U.S. faster

If you plan to come to the United States to work, you'll need to obtain an employment-based immigrant visa. The first step is for a prospective employer to obtain a labor certificate approval from the United States Department of Labor. Once that's obtained, the employer needs to file for an Immigrant Petition for an Alien Worker, which begins the process of bringing you into the country for work.

Different types of United States work visas you may qualify for

Foreign nationals wishing to work in the United States are required to procure a work visa to do so. There are a number of different types of work permits you can apply for depending on the field you qualify to work in, how long you wish to be eligible to work in the county, whether you already have procured a job with a United States employer or not and even depending on what country you're from.

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.

Eligibility and attention to detail key factors to citizenship

No matter where your country of origin happens to be, if you hope to become a U.S. citizen, there are definite steps to follow. U.S. immigration law often changes and can be quite complex and difficult to understand, especially if your particular situation involves a significant language barrier. There are immigrants who prefer to take matters into their own hands and enter the United States by any means possible; this often winds up causing those who act outside accepted parameters a lot of trouble.
