Chicago deportation defense attorney, deportation order, deportation, undocumented minors, unauthorized minorsEver since 2014’s spike in violence in Central America that led to increased immigration of unaccompanied minors into the United States, U.S. immigration authorities have been at somewhat of a loss in how to appropriately handle the status and the overall needs of these children.

The previous administration created what was colloquially called the “rocket docket,” where unaccompanied minors with sponsors in the U.S. could be processed quickly. However, the current administration rescinded this directive, and may even seek to rescind some previously available protections, which would cause confusion and untold harm to children in this situation.

DACA program, Chicago deportation defense attorneys, Chicago immigration attorney, worker’s visa, Chicago immigrationAccording to the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC), the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is still open and accepting applications. However, as the site continues, it may be ‘terminated at any time.’ The status of the DACA program has wavered multiple times in recent months, due to pressure from the White House and various interest groups.

In June 2017, a group of Republican attorneys general added their voice to the discussion, trying to force the administration to rescind permissions that allowed DACA to go forward. This leads to significant confusion and alarm for those with DACA status.

Chicago deportation defense attorneys, revoke citizenship, citizenship application, deportation order, deportationTo lie on one’s application for United States citizenship can put you in deportation proceedings if the lie is ever discovered. Historically, any lie, even the most inconsequential falsehood about petty issues, was grounds for revocation of citizenship. However, in June 2017, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down a ruling that changed this—a ruling that will be significant for many future immigrants who decide to naturalize.

The Ruling

The Court was unanimous in its ruling in favor of Divna Maslenjak, an ethnic Serb originally from Bosnia, who admitted to lying on her application for refugee status about her husband’s military service. Both of the last two administrations have held that this made her deportable, and indeed she and her husband were both deported in October 2016.

Chicago deportation defense attorneys, DAPA, DACA rescinded, deportation order, immigration statusIn June 2017, Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly—now White House chief of staff—officially cancelled the Department’s defense of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans & Lawful Permanent Residents program, known colloquially as DAPA. This means that the program, which was previously on hold pending further litigation, will be allowed to be overturned by the relevant court, instead of going into effect.

While this action partly keeps a presidential campaign promise, it also has the potential to cause considerable trouble for mixed families, as well as casting the survival of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in doubt.

Chicago immigration lawyers, TPS, temporary protected status, undocumented immigrant, current immigration law, skilled foreign nationalsSince the passage of the Immigration Act of 1990, it has been in the purview of first the Attorney General, later the Secretary of Homeland Security, to grant Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to nationals of countries which have experienced significant natural disasters, ongoing armed conflicts, or other conditions that make it dangerous for nationals abroad to return home. As of this writing, there are 10 countries whose nationals receive TPS, but discussion in recent months has underlined the precarious nature of such a status. If you are under TPS now, it is critical that you understand how and when that status is granted and when it can be rescinded.

Requirements for TPS

Once the Secretary of Homeland Security has granted TPS to the nationals of a specific country, those people who are currently physically present in the United States may apply for benefits. However, mere physical presence is not sufficient to satisfy the requirements for status.
