What to do as an immigrant if you’re arrested by the police

If you’ve been following the news lately, you know that tensions are running high when it comes to the subject of immigration. Immigrants in the U.S. are facing growing concerns about their ability to stay in the country. If you’re an undocumented immigrant, just seeing a police officer on the street may give you reason to panic.

Applying for asylum at the border: what to expect

A migrant caravan has been making headlines recently. The group is comprised of asylum seekers from Central American countries—Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala—which are among the most violent countries in the world. The migrants, fleeing for their lives, have trekked more than 2,000 miles over the last month across the whole of Mexico and are seeking protection in the U.S. President Trump has strongly criticized the group and discouraged them from proceeding to the border. He even threatened to set up military forces along the border to prevent the caravan from passing.

Certain immigrant felons may not face deportation

Ever since you were a little kid, you've believed fervently in the American dream. Your only ambition growing up was to move to the United States and live in a free, democratic country. When you were 18, you achieved that dream. You landed a scholarship at an American university, and you were able to start living your life the way you'd always imagined. After college, you found a good job and were able to stay. You met the love of your life, got married and had a child.

The U visa may be your chance to avoid deportation

As the victim of violent crime, who also happens to be an undocumented immigrant in Texas, you may qualify for temporary status protection that helps you avoid deportation. Depending on your circumstances, you may have already endured a long, arduous recovery period following the incident that caused your injury. Hopefully, you are surrounded by a strong support network, including family, friends and others who can help you achieve as full a recovery as possible.

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.

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.

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.
