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.

Under the proposed bill, immigration would shift its focus from admitting individuals with relatives already living in the country to favoring those with desirable skill sets and who also speak English. Many opponents of the bill note that this creates problematic barriers to entry for many groups.

If the bill is signed into law, not only may immigrant communities continue to live under the constant threat of deportation for minor offenses, but those hoping for family to join them here in the states may see those dreams become far more unlikely. As of this writing, the bill excludes those who do not speak English, which is a fairly high bar to pass before entering a country anywhere in the world.

Immigration issues are rarely simple, but you do not have to face them alone. If you or someone you love faces difficulty entering the country, you can consult with an experienced attorney to help you navigate the ever-shifting terrain of immigration. With experienced guidance from an immigration attorney, you can fully understand the issues and create a strong plan to achieve your piece of the American dream.
