There are hurdles to becoming a citizen

There are many immigrants in the Miami area. The immigrants come from all over the world and many times leave their country in search of a better life in the U.S. The U.S. has always had a welcoming policy towards immigrants but lately the political climate has made it hard for immigrants.

The current administration has made immigration one of their top priorities. Because of this, numerous immigration policies have gone into effect that make it harder for an immigrant to obtain U.S. citizenship. One way they are doing this is by enforcing deportation policies. They have expanded the list of reasons that immigrants can be placed before an immigration judge who would then have the option to deport them. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is also identifying students who have an expired visa status. International students who overstay their visa will have to leave the country or go through removal proceedings. The USCIS is also thoroughly examining visa extension applications. In order for a person to extend their visa they must submit evidence to prove their eligibility. They area also increasing workplace inspections to verify visas and make sure the companies are following immigration law.

Immigrants to the U.S. often have many questions regarding their status and how they will be able to remain in the U.S. An attorney who specializes in immigration can help their client through their process. An attorney understands how confusing and stressful immigration matters are and will work with their client to obtain their immigration goals. They can help with visa applications, citizenship applications, helping families stay together, among many other issues.

The current political climate is making it hard for many U.S. immigrants. Those who are in the U.S. from another country may find that an attorney can be good resource.
