What you need to know about the end of childhood deferment action

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), was put into place in 2012. Unfortunately, it is coming to an end. Initially, the program was announced by the secretary of Homeland Security as a way for people who came to America as young children to request deferred action. The deferment could be filed for a period of up to two years. During that time, the individuals would be able to work and prevent deportation proceedings.

Get the green light for your green card

No matter what reasons you have for wanting to work and live in Georgia, you will likely face many challenges as you navigate the immigration process. The more you can learn about green card visas ahead of time, the less problems you may have along the way. The federal government oversees immigration throughout the nation. Your desire to obtain a green card may never materialize if you do not closely adhere to all regulations associated with the process.

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).

Aggravated felonies can cost you the right to naturalization

An aggravated felony is one kind of crime that can lead to deportation. In 1996, Congress expanded what an aggravated felony is when considered in an immigration context. Since then, the United States has held that anyone who committed an aggravated felony since Nov. 29, 1990 is unable to apply for naturalization because of being unable to establish good moral character.

Muchos inmigrantes de la frontera, cerca de la desesperación debido a estos desafíos

Cuando llegaste a Georgia, supusiste que la vida cotidiana incluiría varios tipos de desafíos a medida que aprendías a adaptarte a la vida en los Estados Unidos. Algunos días fueron mejores que otros, y algunos días probablemente te hicieron preguntarte si hiciste lo correcto al venir aquí. En general, usted estaba bastante seguro de que si podía perseverar, superaría cualquier obstáculo que pudiera surgir y echaría raíces para una vida nueva y feliz en Estados Unidos. En el fondo de su mente, sin embargo, temía la deportación.

Many immigrants border close to despair due to these challenges

When you arrived in Georgia, you assumed everyday life would include various types of challenges as you learned to adapt to life in the United States. Some days were better than others, and some days likely made you wonder if you did the right thing in coming here. Overall, you were fairly confident that if you could persevere, you would overcome any obstacles that may arise and set roots for a new, happy life in America. In the back of your mind, however, you feared deportation.

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.
