Asylum advocates call for U.S. immigration law reform

Advocates speaking on behalf of immigrants in another state recently fired some pretty strong accusations against government officials. They say U.S. immigration law needs to change immediately, especially regarding how asylum seekers are being (or are not being) cared for in detention. In fact, such advocates say that the federal government is guilty of child abuse because of current adverse conditions, which witnesses claim are inhumane in a detention facility in their city and beyond. Florida immigrants may want to stay updated on the situation.

As new county supervisors were preparing to be sworn in, hundreds rallied in front of the administration building where the inauguration was scheduled to take place. Those protesting say they themselves have volunteered at migrant shelters and other locations, where they held children shivering from cold due to lack of adequate supplies, such as warm blankets and winter clothing. They also claim that officials have failed to provide medical care to those in need. 

Those calling for change say government officials are tasked with protecting the health and welfare of all people living in the United States, including those who have fled here to escape danger and lives of poverty in their countries of origin. In addition to the humanitarian aspects of such situations, many of these immigrants encounter serious legal problems, as well. Seeking asylum is definitely no guarantee that an immigrant will be allowed to live and work in the country.

Because U.S. immigration law is so complex, situations involving adjustment of status can become complicated, especially for someone who has a severe language barrier. Those well-versed in such laws can be great assets to those with questions regarding their lack of documentation, as well as families with children who are hoping to remain in Florida under protective status. Any man or woman in need of support may reach out at any time to request a meeting with an experienced immigration law attorney.
