A breakdown of the proposed immigration reform

For months, we’ve been hearing talk of a possible end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA)—the federal program initiated five years ago which protects undocumented immigrants who entered the U.S. prior to their 16th birthday from deportation. Last September, President Trump announced his intention to shut down DACA protections. Beneficiaries of the program have been nervously holding their breath ever since.

America's first case of denaturalization

Ever since you were young, you dreamed of becoming an American. You studied hard; you saved your money. After college, you landed a job in New York. After gaining resident status, you applied for citizenship. You took the interview, you passed the tests, and you successfully became a naturalized United States citizen!

The triumphant return of DACA

Young, undocumented immigrants can breathe a collective sigh of relief. A new federal court ruling spells good news for this group. U.S. District Judge William Alsup has blocked the Trump administration’s order to repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

When to replace your green card

Whether your immigration status is permanent or conditional, you rely on your green card to show that you belong in America. Your green card is probably one of your most valuable possessions, both because it protects your life in the U.S. and because it usually isn’t easy to obtain.

Should U.S. military service automatically grant you citizenship?

You may not realize that many U.S. military personnel fight overseas for our freedom every day without having the full benefits of American freedom themselves. These brave men and women—legal permanent residents—put their lives on the line for us, but could still be subject to deportation if they later make a misstep against the law.

3 reasons to take your lawyer to your naturalization interview

Immigration attorneys offer a wide array of services connected to the naturalization process—ranging from assistance with the application to preparation for the exam. One service that many immigration attorneys offer is to accompany their clients to the naturalization interview. You might be wondering why your attorney’s presence would be beneficial here. We’ve laid out a few reasons your attorney can aid your interview process.

Seeking a provisional waiver of unlawful presence

If you are in the United States unlawfully, you may think this prevents you from fulfilling your dream of obtaining your green card. Your spouse may be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident, but your unlawful status is a barrier to you. This is because you must apply for your immigrant visa from outside the United States. However, if you leave the country, the ban imposed due to your unlawful presence takes effect.
