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.

Interior immigration detentions appear to be on the rise

If there's one topic that is likely to arouse contentious debate in both political and private circles, immigration may be it. If New Jersey residents were asked to participate in a survey regarding personal or political views on immigration and, in particular, immigration detentions, results would no doubt vary. Some might say reform and advocacy is greatly needed for immigrants in this state and throughout the nation and others would probably call for more stringent regulation and increased deportations.

ICE says immigration situation has nothing to do with retaliation

Many people in New Jersey and throughout the nation have been following a news story regarding a 35-year-old immigrant. The immigration situation taking place in another state involves an already deported immigrant, a detained immigrant and assertions that ICE is retaliating against the latter because he talked to the press about the former. The governor of the state where the man lives now claims he has thoroughly investigated the matter and is convinced no retaliation has taken place.

Hundreds turn out to oppose proposed immigration detention center

An 83-year-old man who grew up on a farm west of New Jersey joined hundreds of others at a recent town meeting to speak his opposition toward a proposed project in the area. Officials say a plan is in the works to construct a new immigration detention facility on the very farmland where the elderly gentleman spent his childhood. The man said professional baseball player, Lou Criger, who caught for Hall of Fame pitcher, Cy Young, also lived on the land for a time.

Woman worried about immigration and naturalization issues

In New Jersey and many other states throughout the nation, there are countless immigrants who obtained temporary protected legal status in 2012 when the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program began. Many of these young adults have lived in the United States most of their lives and are at various points along their immigration and naturalization journeys. Some, like one woman in another state who recently told her story, are currently worried that the recent ending of DACA has made them deportable.

Heated immigration situation remains ongoing in another state

Many New Jersey readers may be familiar with the story of a young immigrant in another state who was being held in detention on suspicion of human smuggling activity. There were never any criminal charges filed against the 20-year-old, who happens to be a leg amputee. His story made news headlines when he told of immigration officials (who apparently did not know he understood English) mocking his disability. In a turn of events in this immigration law case, the man's release from detention was recently scheduled.
