Immigration policy may affect those applying for extensions

On Behalf of | Sep 20, 2018 | US Immigration Law |

There are many immigrants in the Miami area. They are in the U.S. for work or to seek a better future for themselves and their family. Recently, immigrants had a harder time in the U.S. with all of the policy updates that have affected their applications, status, etc. It can be hard to keep up with all of the changes that are constantly occurring because of the Trump administration. A new U.S. immigration law policy was recently announced that has the potential to affect thousands of immigrants.

A new policy that took effect last week has the potential to affect nearly all immigration applications, petitions and requests. These include U.S. citizenship, visa extensions and permanent residents. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced the policy, which gives immigration officials broader authority to issue denials based on applications containing mistakes or missing documents. Applicants will not have the opportunity to fix the mistakes or provide the missing documents, but will instead just have their application denied. This new policy may affect up to 7 million people each year.

Immigrants in the Miami area often feel like there are always policy changes that affect them. Trying to get their applications for visas and citizenships filled out and turned in is a complicated process. A legal professional who is skilled in U.S. immigration law is a good resource for those who need help navigating the process. An attorney understands how important it is for an immigrant to live and work in the U.S. and how they can feel overwhelmed with the complicated process. An attorney has the skills and experience necessary to make sure their client’s immigration needs are met and their questions are answered.

There is a large population of immigrants in the Miami area. These immigrants are important members of the society but can sometimes feel like they are under suspicion and discriminated against.
