Chicago deportation defense attorneys, temporary protected status, deportation, non-immigrant visa, lawful permanent residentOn March 12, 2018, a lawsuit was filed in federal court in San Francisco by representatives of immigrants from four countries, alleging that the end to Temporary Protected Status (TPS) was racially motivated. Immigrants from El Salvador, Nicaragua, Haiti and Sudan filed in the Northern District of California seeking a reinstatement of TPS, or alternatively, a stay that would allow those with minor children of school age to remain until graduation. This is the third suit filed challenging the program’s end. While the decision will take time, these suits could wind up ultimately affecting TPS holders for the better.

TPS Provides Safety

Temporary Protected Status is a status granted by the Department of Homeland Security (formerly by the Attorney General) to nationals of countries deemed to have been affected by natural disasters or war to an extent where the country’s infrastructure has broken down. As of this writing, there are 10 countries whose nationals have TPS—Haiti, El Salvador, Somalia, Nicaragua, Nepal, South Sudan, Syria, Yemen, and Honduras. All these countries have experienced either significant natural disasters, such as the earthquakes in Haiti and Nepal, or periods of civil war or unrest, such as in Somalia or El Salvador.

Chicago deportation defense attorneys, Illinois immigration, ICE, undocumented immigrants, deportation orderDuring the seemingly endless discussion of sanctuary jurisdictions in the U.S., much has been discussed surrounding what are called ICE holds or immigration detainers, and what that term of art actually means. If you or a loved one are the subject of an ICE hold, it is critical to understand what options you have in terms of negotiating release from it.

Immigration and the Criminal Justice System

Under the current federal administration, Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) has, in many eyes, become an arm of the criminal justice system, instead of its own separate entity. Certainly this synergy is shown when discussing deportation requests—one main cog of the deportation machine is when local police forces are requested to detain immigrants. ICE obtains information about immigrants, both documented and undocumented, through a variety of programs that funnel data about non-citizens to them.

Chicago deportation defense attorneys, green card holders, cancellation of removal, DACA recipients, DREAMersAs of this writing, both houses of Congress have failed to pass any comprehensive fix for the lingering question that is the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Instituted under President Obama, the program has been under attack since the installation of the current administration, being ‘cancelled’ in September 2017, though currently there is an injunction in place against its disbandment. Nonetheless, the question must be asked—if no fix is passed to grant legal status to the DREAMers, what can they do? Is there any reprieve possible?

Expedited Removal is an Issue

One major concern for many DREAMers is what is referred to as expedited removal. The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigration Responsibility Act (IIRIRA), passed in 1996, instituted the concept, which permits immigration authorities to arrest and deport those in the country for less than two years without giving them a hearing before an immigration judge (which is required for all others charged with immigration violations). Formerly, this was only enforced within the so-called 100-mile zone, meaning that the interior of the country was a safe zone of sorts. This administration has extended the reach of this procedure to the entire country.

deportation, Chicago deportation defense attorneys, inadmissible, current immigration law, deportableThere are two different ways a person can be ruled deportable, and determining the one that applies to an individual depends on his or her location. For instance, the determination will be different if someone is in the U.S. already, versus if he or she is still waiting to enter.

Inadmissibility

When someone is talked about as being inadmissible, it means that he or she is not officially in the United States, and he or she will not be permitted to enter— the individual meets a certain ground of inadmissibility. For example, any foreign national who has a history of immigration violations is likely to be ruled inadmissible (in other words, unable to be admitted).

Chicago deportation defense attorneys, immigration, criminal charges, criminal charges for immigration, deportationBeing brought up on criminal charges is always frightening and disconcerting. For non-citizen defendants, there is an added dimension to fear. Depending on the nature of the crime committed, it can sometimes be used as a tool for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to deport you. If you have committed a crime, it is imperative that you understand the nature of the charges against you and be aware as to whether it could result in immigration consequences.

Crimes of Moral Turpitude

Many foreign nationals living in the U.S. have had run-ins with law enforcement, though the end results can be anything from a warning to a murder conviction. A significant portion of the crimes that have been alleged against them fall under a category USCIS refers to as crimes of moral turpitude (CIMTs). If you commit a crime of moral turpitude within two years of your admission to the U.S., or more than one in a ‘single scheme’ within five years of admission, it is grounds for deportation.
