If someone in New Jersey gets arrested, he or she may be held in a county jail until a judge determines the next course of action. However, if that person is actively being sought by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers for immigration detention issues, things can get messy when the two jurisdictions intersect. This is exactly the type of situation a man in another state is currently facing.
The holiday season is often busy for New Jersey families. From shopping for gifts to hosting relatives and friends for parties, many people say they dread this time of year because it is so stressful. Most would agree that there are many families facing more serious problems than deciding what to buy or where to shop; for instance, a family in another state is currently trying to resolve a serious immigration problem.
Many adult sons in New Jersey are protective of their fathers. If a son were to think his father in danger, it would not be uncommon for him to try to protect him. This is what a 19-year-old man in another state says he was doing when immigration officers were trying to force his dad into the back of a van.
A man in another state had taken the proper steps to file a petition for permanent residency based on his marriage to a U.S. citizen. He entered the United States well over a decade ago and has raised two sons here, one of whom was born in the U.S. The man and his wife thought that his immigration and naturalization process was going well, especially since his petition for a green card had been accepted. New Jersey residents facing challenges regarding Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers will want to pay close attention to this case.
Applying for U.S. citizenship can be a complicated process for New Jersey residents and others. Especially if the applicant has information on his or her record that may cause concern among Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, obstacles may cause significant delays or otherwise impede the immigration and naturalization process. A man in another state thought he was going to improve his lifestyle when he applied for citizenship but instead, has been sitting in detention since January because of the events that unfolded at a Citizenship and Immigration Services center.
Like many New Jersey couples have done in the past, a woman in another state recently attended a Stokes interview. She happens to be a U.S. citizen and had been married to her husband, a Nicaraguan immigrant, for three years when the date for their immigration marriage interview finally arrived. She was confident all would go well because she was prepared to show clear documentation that would substantiate the legitimacy of their marriage. The woman was left feeling completely distraught when the interview not only did not go well, it resulted in immigration detention for her spouse.
Many TV fans watch Real Housewives of New Jersey and are familiar with Joe Giudice and his wife, Teresa. Those who have been following the couple's recent legal situation may also be aware that Giudice is serving a 41-month prison sentence for bank fraud. To make matters worse, an immigration order has been issued that states he is to be immediately deported to Italy as soon as he is released from jail.
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.
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.
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.
