US immigration law: Court orders city to pay compensation

Many Florida immigrants and their families are worried about detainer issues. It is definitely not an issue that concerns people in this state alone. In fact, a recent court case in another state involved an immigrant who was detained on two separate occasions after a judge had already ordered his release from jail.

US immigration law: Are Florida detention centers like prisons?

There are approximately 2,000 immigrants per day placed in detention in Florida. Many immigrant advocates say this number is exorbitant and driven by profit-hungry privateers who own most of the facilities where such people are housed. Advocates also say that many U.S. immigration law detention centers in this state more closely resemble prisons than the transition, processing or holding centers they are supposed to be. 

Simplifying facts regarding US immigration law

There are currently thousands of immigrants living and working in Florida. It is no secret that U.S. immigration law is highly complex and often a subject of debate. If you or your loved one are currently experiencing problems related to immigration or legal status issues, it is a good idea to connect with someone who can provide guidance and support.

US immigration law: Florida centers receive negative report

There are numerous immigration detention centers in Florida, and many more throughout the United States. It is not uncommon for various entities to submit U.S. immigration law reports that show such facilities in either positive or negative light, depending on certain factors. For instance, if detainees in a particular center are well-cared for in a clean environment, then a positive review would likely be given.

US immigration law: ICE statements unverified by detainees

A group of immigrant advocates in another state recently protested at that state's capitol. The women are calling on U.S. immigration law officials to protect women in immigration detention facilities. They recently visited a privately-owned detention center and were horrified by what the detainees told them. Many of the issues raised at the protest impact immigration detainees in Florida as well.

Man in another state facing US immigration law problems

Many Florida residents have trees in their yards. Sometimes, people cut their trees down for numerous reasons. One would not likely expect that cutting down a tree would spark U.S. immigration law problems, as it has apparently done in the case of a man who lives in another state.

US immigration law: Things to know regarding temporary visas

Not every man or woman who travels to Florida from other countries of origin intend to stay here permanently. Many of them apply for temporary visas because they wish to visit, work or study in the United States for a time, then return to their homelands. There are many types of visas. If something goes wrong in the application process, after a visa expires or in other circumstances, problems with U.S. immigration law may follow.

US immigration law and criminal justice often intersect

In Florida and elsewhere, there are undocumented immigrants who have been convicted of crimes. In many cases, when local law enforcement releases people from custody, notice is sent to federal immigration agencies. This is not always done, as was evident in a recent series of releases that took place in another state.

Many people worried about US immigration law changes

Many Florida households include members who were born in other countries. Staying updated on U.S. immigration law policies is challenging, even for those well-versed in such issues. A recent mention of possible upcoming changes has many immigrants and advocates alarmed. 

US immigration law: Were you or a loved one detained re asylum?

Many Florida residents have emigrated from other countries. Some traveled alone, others with family members. Some went through extensive application processes, others fled situations of violence, poverty or persecution and sought asylum when they reached a U.S. border. Because of current U.S. immigration law, many (if not most) people in the latter group are placed in detention facilities while their cases are adjudicated.
