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).

Several cities and counties in Georgia are among those pushing back against the efforts of ICE to use local resources to find and detain immigrants for deportation. The Trump administration is doing what it can to mount pressure on nearly 30 cities throughout the country, most recently with an order to cut federal funding to law enforcement departments who limit their cooperation in rounding up immigrants for deportation. This threat of funding cuts was overruled by the federal judges, who noted that such sanctions are not constitutional.

While this move is an important one, the fight is far from over. It is possible that these very cases may go all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States, which may rule in favor of the sanctions.

Now, more than ever, when you fight for your own rights as an immigrant, you are fighting for the rights of thousands of others too. If you face some immigration issue, do not hesitate to reach out to an attorney with a strong immigration defense practice. Together with an experienced attorney, you can use the strength of the law to protect yourself and extend protection to others who depend on you. This fight is certainly one of the most important issues of our time, and you may be an important part of turning the tide and making America the country you deserve to live in.
