immigration and naturalization Archives

Immigration and naturalization issues often include asylum

New Jersey families who have emigrated from other countries understand how challenging it can be to adapt to life in the United States. Many have set immigration and naturalization goals for themselves, hoping to one day become U.S. citizens. For those who have sought asylum, they must live in the United States for at least one year after obtaining their legal status before they can apply for permanent residency.

Key factor to success in immigration removal hearings

As the federal government continues to increase the number of arrests Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents make in New Jersey and throughout the nation, discussions on the topic also continue, especially concerning the immigration removal system, which many people agree is in great need of reform. When a U.S. citizen is facing criminal charges, he or she is given the opportunity to retain legal support. If the person cannot afford to hire an attorney, the court will appoint one on his or her behalf. 

Foreign nationals in New Jersey at risk for immigration trouble

Just walking along a New Jersey street appears to be dangerous for certain people, especially those who came to this state from countries of other origins. In fact, more than 90 people are currently facing immigration problems after Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents took them into custody. The individuals were taken into ICE custody in various counties, including Cumberland, Essex and Hudson. 

Teenager speaks about immigration and naturalization issues

In New Jersey and across the country, teenage life often includes things like playing sports on high school teams, working part-time jobs and helping parents with home projects and other family issues, such as taking care of younger siblings. For families facing immigration and naturalization problems, teenagers' lives may also include very stressful situations. In fact, a boy in another state recently experienced a life-changing event.

More changes proposed for immigration and naturalization policies

There's already a backlog in the court system regarding incidents involving people who reportedly entered New Jersey or other states without proper immigration paperwork. Newly proposed immigration and naturalization policy changes may cause further delays and cause more overcrowding in immigration detention centers throughout the nation. Immigrant advocates are opposed to the federal government's proposal that all immigrants crossing United States borders without immigration papers in order should face criminal charges.  

Big immigration victory in court for asylum seekers

A U.S. district judge has handed down a ruling regarding the application process for those seeking asylum in the United States from other countries of origin. Many people who eventually land in New Jersey to begin new lives start out by crossing borders to the United States in fear for their lives because of imminent dangers in their homelands. Some wind up in detention centers but are released to await their immigration hearings once officials are able to substantiate their claims that they are afraid to go back to where they came from because their lives are at risk.  

Immigration and naturalization case to be heard by Supreme Court

It's no secret that there is never a shortage of political debate in New Jersey and across the country about immigration issues. On any given day, it's likely that a survey regarding immigration and naturalization issues would produce hundreds of different answers, depending on personal, professional or partisan opinions. One situation currently being litigated at the federal level may impact the lives of many immigrants throughout the nation.

Congolese woman released from immigration detention center

Immigrants in New Jersey may relate to an ongoing, troubling situation in another state involving a woman who is struggling to overcome problems associated with her recent detainment. The immigration situation made headline news when the woman, who is said to have fled to the United States alongside her 7-year-old daughter, was taken into custody and separated from her child. Her circumstances recently changed when immigration officials responded to a public outcry for her release.

Are New Jersey immigrants afraid to call police for help?

Most New Jersey residents logically assume that police will come to their aid if they call them for help. For instance, if a particular resident were to witness someone on their property in the wee hours of the morning whom he or she neither invited there nor recognized at all, it would not be uncommon for the resident to call police to investigate the matter. Immigrants in a neighborhood in another state are worried that reaching out for such help may wind up landing them behind bars instead of a possible intruder.

Immigration and naturalization process halted upon detention

Many New Jersey residents are currently navigating processes to become permanent residents or citizens of the United States. The immigration and naturalization system is often complex; any number of obstacles may arise to delay or prevent an immigrant from accomplishing his or her goals. In one man's case in another state, the biggest impediment is currently risk of deportation.
