Georgia immigration board members accused of overstaying term

For months, Georgia has been a focal point for many stories that demonstrate the complex cultural and legal issues that affect immigration in the United States. Now, in a surprising turn of events, several members of the state's Immigration Enforcement Review Board are under fire for allegedly breaking laws by remaining on the board longer than the law stipulates.

The conflict arose when the Decatur city attorney pointed out that five of the seven members currently serving on the board have held the positions since 2011, when the board was created. However, the city attorney argues that the law states that board members can serve no longer than two two-year terms.

Depending on what happens in court, these five board members may step down from their positions, either voluntarily or otherwise. This may greatly impact the direction of immigration law at a state and local level.

If you or someone you know faces difficulty with legal issues surrounding immigration, it is very important that you understand your legal rights and the tools that you have at your disposal. It is also very important to understand as much as possible about local and state developments like this one, which may seriously impact future laws and how the laws currently on the books get enforced.

Facing any kind of criminal charges can mean detention and even deportation for undocumented individuals and even those here with proper documentation in some cases. If you have concerns about any immigration law issues, make sure that you seek the guidance you need to protect yourself and your family.
