Miami immigration court accused of speeding up deportation

The Trump administration's crackdown on immigration is often in the news these days, but most of the news coverage is focused on the border with Mexico. Getting less national media attention is a crackdown on asylum seekers here in Miami.

Judge suspends deportations of immigrant families

Over the past few months the news has been full of immigrants who have been separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. The practice of separating families has not ended, but the legal battles continue. Recently reunited families have been deported immediately, leading to more traumatic events in the lives of immigrants seeking asylum in the U.S and family immigration.

Miami republicans are against policy of separating families

Every year immigrants arrive at the U.S. border seeking a better life. These immigrants are from all over Central and South America and believe the U.S. is where their family will be better off. It is hard to find fault with this logic, as the U.S. has always been the country where immigrants have worked hard to pull themselves up from their bootstraps and work hard to make sure future generations will have a better life. Recent family immigration policies have created havoc on the border.

Activists want to end separation of immigrant parents, children

Recent news stories are highlighting the reality that many immigrant families are facing. Children are being separated form their parents at the border. These unthinkable actions have led to many protests across the United States.

Helping you through family immigration issues

Unfortunately, families cannot always act as a unit. In some cases, countries separate foreign families when a family member seeks to relocate to the United States. It is no uncommon for individuals to enter the U.S. for professional and educational opportunities with the intention of reuniting with family members later on down the line. Through family immigration laws, family members are able to apply for certain visa, giving them the right to enter and remain in the U.S. with legal status.

Immigrant children still being separated from their parents

Those who are seeking refuge in the United States have faced tremendous hardship just to get here and then agony at the border. The recent political climate has not helped and there are countless stories of immigrants at the border having their children taken from them.

Elderly may lose caregivers if immigration plan goes into effect

There are many elderly people who reside in Florida. This population often requires special care in regard to their health and day to day tasks. The people who help the elderly population are often immigrants and may be affected by the recent immigration issues that are plaguing the United States.

Helping bring immigrant families together

Everyone has their own story. For those coming to the United States to live in the country permanently, their story in the U.S. begins as they enter the path to citizenship. This process can start for many reasons, but many of those seeking to become permanent residents do so as a means to keep family members together.

Helping establish permanent residency or citizenship for family

It is not always the case that a family can emigrate to the U.S. together. In some situations, a spouse has to relocate to the United States for a job, intending to have their family join them later on. While this plan might seem solid initially, many families face immigration problems when attempting to reunite with a family member who is currently a permanent resident or is now a U.S. citizen.

What should you do if confronted by immigration officials?

With so much anti-immigration sentiment across Florida and the United States, those who are immigrants in the United States may be feeling anxious lately. There are many people who are worried about immigration raids at their place of employment or other area they frequently visit. If a person is stopped by an immigration and naturalization service official there are certain things they should keep in mind.
