In an ongoing and public debate, the United States is taking steps to try and tamp down on illegal immigration. A part of that has involved not just stopping people from coming in illegally or coming in with legal status and overstaying their visas, but it has extended to arrests and deportations, even for those who have roots, started a family and been in Miami, in the U.S. contributing to the economy and paying taxes for many years. These people are often law abiding citizens and are trying to gain the right to stay in the U.S. legally.
With the new presidential administration, not a day goes by when the story of an immigrant who came to the U.S. for a better life is treated as a criminal because he or she is an immigrant. The nationality and religious beliefs are also being used as a test to determine whether a person can enter or not, stay or not. When there is fear of arrest and deportation, everyone has the right to be protected with help from an immigration attorney.
A lawyer can help with removal hearings after there has been a criminal conviction or immigration law violations; with getting asylum and preventing removal due to the U.S. policy; bond hearings; detention hearings; petitions for review in the U.S. Court of Appeals, and more. As legal challenges fly back and forth and more people are relegated to hiding in the shadows to avoid being arrested and deported, having legal assistance with illegal immigration issues grows in importance. Whether it is a person who is seeking to be granted legal status or someone who is mistakenly arrested for one reason or another and is in the U.S. legally, a lawyer is vital.
It can be terrifying to see what is happening in the news and wonder whether an individual or a family member will be the next to be deported based on interpretations of the US immigration law. A lawyer who is experienced in helping those who are facing issues related to being an immigrant, illegal immigration and any other matter related to the possibility of being deported is key to dealing with the case.
