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

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.

Requirements for naturalization

Many people from all corners of the world dream of becoming a naturalized citizen of the United States. Unfortunately, many citizen-hopefuls are unsure what the requirements for naturalization actually are. While there are many parts of the naturalization process that may be subject to change in the next few years, as of now, the requirements are fairly straightforward. Anyone who wishes to become a naturalized citizen of the U.S. should begin by familiarizing themselves with the basic requirements, and then seek additional help in walking through the process.

Immigration may be key to growing the U.S. economy

The recently-confirmed election of Donald Trump has led to a lot of speculation on whether the President-elect will follow through with his campaign promises on immigration. As January looms larger, observers are considering how those promises might interact with Trump's other promises, particularly his intention to double the growth rate of the U.S. economy while in power.
