Immigration Attorney Case Load Increasing As Immigration Authorities Get Tougher

Rio Grande Valley immigration lawyers are seeing an increase in illegal immigration cases as a direct result of the dramatic crackdown taking place in Arizona and Texas. Authorities in Arizona are taking steps to curb the violence and misery that highlight the illegal immigrant trade that drives so much crime in Arizona, the busiest illegal crossing point along the U.S.-Mexico border. Immigration authorities in Texas don’t seem to be taking it easy either.

“I’ve seen a steady stream of cases and I’m only expecting it to get much busier. I think they’re pretty tough here too,” says McAllen immigration attorney Raul Garcia. “I already have cases throughout the Valley, Laredo, San Antonio, and Austin, and I can only imagine that this trend is going to increase. My clients tell me that it’s much easier to cross through the Valley and other parts of the Texas border, than it is to go through the Arizona desert, especially now.”

This isn't the first time migration patterns have shifted. Immigrants funneled into Arizona when the government tightened enforcement in El Paso, Texas, and San Diego during the mid-1990s, leading to a mass of problems for Phoenix and the state.

“People will keep coming from Mexico and Central and South America. It’s inevitable. If employers in the United States are willing to pay, they’re willing to come,” says Garcia.
