Learning about US immigration law can help you integrate

Arriving in Florida or elsewhere in the United States as an immigrant can be exciting and terrifying at the same time. If a person is unfamiliar with U.S. immigration law, he or she might be especially worried that a legal obstacle may arise while adapting to his or her new lifestyle. Immigrants often say they go through stages of adjustment, and a common ultimate goal among most immigrants is to become fully integrated into U.S. culture.

US immigration law: Advocates oppose DNA collection

If a Florida household includes a family member who was taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, it can cause stress and worry for the entire family. U.S. immigration law is complex, and policies are constantly changing. It can be challenging for the average person to know his or her rights and how to protect them in detention.

US immigration law: Man was detained when he fell, now can't walk

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers say they do not believe a man who says he can no longer walk due an injury he suffered while in detention. The U.S. immigration law officials said they have evidence that a medical examination showed the man did not suffer any injury that would cause inability to walk. An attorney speaking on behalf of the man, however, has stated otherwise. Immigrants in Florida have also complained about unhealthy and unsafe living conditions in detention facilities. 

Stay calm if US immigration law problems arise

Federal law governs all matters regarding immigration. New immigrants arrive in Florida all the time, each having experienced a unique set of circumstances in traveling to the United States. U.S. immigration law is complex, and it is not uncommon for issues to arise that delay or impede a person's ability to accomplish immigration-related goals. 

Will US immigration law officials release detainees from custody?

Florida immigrants may be at risk for detention for any number of reasons. For instance, if a man or woman approaches a U.S. border to request asylum, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers may detain him or her for some time. Another reason U.S. immigration law officials might take someone into custody would be if he or she entered the United States without proper paperwork in order.

US immigration law problems: World class athletes not immune

Many Florida immigrants are athletes who have traveled to the United States to compete. Even a world class athlete, however, must adhere to U.S. immigration law and apply for a visa like any other person who wishes to come to the U.S. to live or work. There are many types of visas and it is critical that an applicant understands the exact one needed.

US immigration law: Many Africans concerned about recent change

Many Florida immigrants entered the United States with marriage-based, employment-based or other types of visas. U.S. immigration law governs the issue of such visas. Such laws are subject to change, as made evident by a recent policy, more specifically, a restriction set regarding those wishing to travel to the U.S. to live and work from certain regions in Africa.

US immigration law: Will teenager be deported?

From the time a Florida immigrant is placed in detention to the time his or her case is fully adjudicated, many months or even years might pass. A 19-year-old male has been in detention for approximately two years. During that time, he confided in a licensed therapist regarding many atrocities he had experienced as an unaccompanied minor who had entered the United States. U.S. immigration law officials somehow learned of the issues the teen discussed with his therapist, and he is now at risk for immediate deportation.

Judge's US immigration law ruling will affect many lives

Many Florida immigrants know what it is like to be called an interview with government officials. It can be stressful, to say the least, especially if the person in question may be at risk for deportation. However, a U.S. District Court judge sitting in another state recently handed down a ruling that may affect many immigrants who are currently involved in U.S. immigration law proceedings.

The rapper emigrated from Great Britain to the United States as a child.
