DACA immigrants waiting for word on any kind of deal

Immigrants in Miami have been feeling like they are under siege over the last year. With the new administration in place, immigration issues have been at the forefront. One of the most affected parties by the immigration discussions have been the over 800,000 immigrants who are in the US through DACA.

The federal government recently shut down and the major sticking point was Congress not reaching a deal over DACA. President Trump vowed to end legal status to those who fall under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals in September, putting thousands of immigrants at risk for deportation. Congress has been negotiating the DACA status and have tied it to the federal budget which has resulted in a shutdown. Miami Representative Mario Diaz-Balart believes that an agreement on DACA is still possible, but President Trump wants to tie DACA to building a border wall with Mexico and ending the process of the family reunification program which he calls "chain migration".

These are challenging immigration times in the United States. Those who are immigrants may feel like they are constantly under attack. They can feel uncertain in their country where they have lived for many years and built their lives in the communities they love. If a family has immigration issues, including visas, citizenship, etc. they may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in immigration. An attorney is up-to-date on the latest legal immigration issues and can help a family with any issue they may face. An attorney understands that families want to remain together and can help keep these families in the United States legally.

Thousands of Miami residents are affected by DACA. Knowing how DACA changes may affect a person is important and it is why an immigration attorney can be critical.
