Game-changer up ahead for immigration and naturalization process

New Jersey is home to many immigrants. Some live here with permanent residency statuses, some with temporary visas and others who were undocumented when they entered the country. The latest news suggests there are major changes in the works for the immigration and naturalization process that have immigrant advocates on edge. They say the proposed changes may place the privacy of many people at risk.

Another heated immigration dispute re a mother's DACA status

One can only imagine the emotional turmoil of two children, ages 5 and 11 months, at suddenly being separated from their mother. That's exactly what has happened, however, in a controversial immigration situation that has taken place in another state. The children's mother, age 22, is about to be deported from the United States even though those advocating on her behalf say her legal status is protected through the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Act.

Immigration and naturalization changes led to man's deportation

Many of the nation's estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants live in New Jersey. Some are undoubtedly worried (as others throughout the nation are) about recent crackdowns regarding immigration and naturalization policies that appear to target undocumented immigrants. In fact, a family who has been living in this state for a long time recently suffered great sorrow when the husband/father was forced to say goodbye as he was deported to Guatemala.

Study: New Jersey ranks among top ten states for deportations

Without question, immigration has emerged as one of the most controversial and pressing issues since the Trump administration assumed control of the executive branch back in January. Indeed, from the proposed travel ban to the more recent efforts to reform the H-1B visa system, many questions remain as to what course will be plotted by the White House in this area over the next four years.

Immigrants face uncertain future in New Jersey

Immigrant communities and attorneys are doing their best to parse through some recent statements by Governor Chris Christie after Princeton University made a show of defying President Trump's move gather up and deport large numbers of immigrants. Christie's remarks indicate that he supports the President's efforts to deport "dangerous" immigrants, but he also seemed unbothered that the sweeping new efforts are affecting immigrants with no violent history at all.

Are you planning to hire immigrants?

As a New Jersey employer, you're likely aware of the labor shortage in America. In fact, this might be one of several reasons you're considering hiring employees who are emigrating here from other countries. Many business owners also believe that having a diverse workforce helps them become more competitive on a global scale. Skilled immigrants often possess a variety of skills and accreditations in many different fields.

Do you know your rights during an immigration arrest?

In the wake of the executive orders signed by President Trump on January 27, many immigrants are worried about the threat of deportation. Whether they are one of the 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country or are here as a permanent resident, there may be reason to worry.

When medical care leads to deportation

When discussing the topic of deportation in the United States, the medical industry might not seem to be connected. However, it is actually quite common for hospitals to deport undocumented immigrants directly from the hospital while they are receiving care for a chronic disease, according to a recent NPR report.

Aggravated felonies must be fought fiercely

If you are an immigrant in the United States, you already know that fair treatment is not always easy to come by for those who are not citizens here. It is vital to your safety and ongoing freedom to do everything you can to stay on the right side of the law. Not only are you responsible for yourself, your actions (or even actions you may be accused of) also reflect on the greater immigrant community. For this and many other reasons, it is vitally important that you do everything you can to avoid being charged with a felony. Unfortunately, this is even harder for immigrants than citizens.
