Recent executive orders signed by President Trump, have sparked widespread discussion within the immigrant community. U.S. immigration laws and policy are centerstage. Much of what is being discussed within the immigrant community, although well intentioned, can often be misguided and misleading. In this current situation, having an immigration expert educate you so you can make an informed decision is of course a wise plan.
On February 20, 2017 The U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued a Memo outlining the new enforcement priorities for ICE. People that are priority for removal are those that:
Immigration policy and enforcement continues to evolve undergoing a large shift and uncertainty abounds. Undocumented immigrants fear ICE knocking at their door and those with lawful immigration status, but who are not yet U.S. citizens, are also uncertain.

We hope this brief article alleviates some of those concerns.
Around this time every year, we receive many inquiries regarding the possibility of immigrating to the U.S., work visas, investment visas, and information regarding possible changes in U.S. immigration laws. With a new year and a new Administration upon us, this year is no exception. Many proposed changes have already taken effect and more changes are on the horizon which might change your options. Here are some examples:
Within one week of being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America, President Trump has made good on two immigration-related campaign trail promises, namely: Building a wall to secure the Southern Border and 2.

Happy New Year! Here we are, a few weeks into the New Year and the inauguration of President-Elect Trump is upon us. For better or worse, like any new political administration, we should expect change. While promises made on the campaign trail are often meant to be broken, some presently existing programs may go away. This is not meant to instill fear. Instead, it is meant to encourage you to apply for what you can now. Laws don't change overnight and cannot be retroactive in their application even if changed. Please, let us help you get an application for relief started before it's too late.
