In recent months we have been posting about the many ways that the Trump Administration is changing policies to make life more difficult for immigrants. It seems like every week, and even every day, there is a new announcement of a change for the worse. Some recent examples include many changes that are making it increasingly difficult to seek asylum, making financial support requirements more difficult for applicants for permanent resident status, the end of a humanitarian program to allow persons to be here to receive medical treatment, and the expansion of the use of “expedited removal.”
The continuous announcements of new and different ways to hurt immigrants can be exhausting and demoralizing. If you are feeling this way, we understand. We are in the middle of a challenging time for immigrants, not only in the United States, but in many countries around the world. Anti-immigrant propaganda appears to be on the rise everywhere.
At our office, our commitment to you is that we will work hard with you to do whatever we can to help you in your fight. We will never sugar-coat our assessment of your situation. We always give you an honest assessment of your situation, and how we might be able to help. Sometimes there is a way forward. And, unfortunately, sometimes we need to explain that in some cases there is not a way to help you. Our policy is to listen carefully to you, ask you questions and seek documents to get a complete and realistic view of your situation, and then explain to you how we might be able to help. Then, we get to work to provide you with the best legal services that we can.
Although things are tough at this time, we are hopeful that the future will be brighter.
Whether your case involves an application for permanent residence, a waiver, removal of conditions on permanent residence, naturalization, asylum, removal proceedings in Immigration Court, a BIA appeal, a federal court appeal, a habeas corpus petition, or other federal court action, please understand that we are here for you.
