U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has targeted and detained a significant number of migrant families this year, and is expected to continue to do so.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 09, 2016
According to a recent article published January 5th in The Atlantic, new federal raids are targeting the thousands of families who have entered the U.S. illegally from various Central American countries. Although the US government initiated a milder deportation policy in 2014, it only applies to individuals who entered the country before the start of that year. The article adds that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has targeted and detained a significant number of migrant families this year, and is expected to continue to do so. Los Angeles-based immigration attorney Henry Posada notes that these developments mean that immigrants who wish to remain in the United States need effective representation more urgently than ever.
According to Mr. Posada, although not every family who has crossed the border may be targeted by these types of raids, the best possible solution for individuals and families at risk is winning the right to residency and asylum through the legal system. Expressing concern over the recent raids, Mr. Posada notes that effective and experienced legal representation may be the most essential element in allowing some immigrants to stay with their families in the U.S., and to avoid being placed in a detention center or being deported. Additionally, the immigration attorney notes that, even the most law-abiding and productive immigrant may still be a victim of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) aggressive removal proceedings, which can ultimately lead to detention or deportation. In such situations, Mr. Posada underlines the benefits of effective legal representation. He adds that his legal firm assists individuals in cases involving lawful permanence residence (green card), family petitions, and employment and business based petitions, including applications for labor certifications through the U.S. Department of Labor as well as employment petitions for foreign workers.
