Chicago deportation defense lawyers, stay of deportation, deportation order, deportation, cancellation of removalMost immigrants who petition for a stay of deportation or removal will do so based on a law they believe helps their case. Sometimes, however, an undocumented person has to depend on what is called a cancellation of removal, which is essentially prosecutorial discretion, allowing him or her to stay in the U.S., though he or she technically lacks the right to remain. Among the requirements that must be demonstrated, the immigrant must show at least “exceptional” hardship to a U.S. citizen if he or she was to be deported. This standard has become all but impossible to meet.

The Requirements

In order to qualify for cancellation of removal under the Immigration & Nationality Act (INA), three requirements must be met. The alien must (1) not have been convicted of certain offenses and generally been a person of “good moral character” during his or her stay in the United States; (2) resided in the U.S. for at least 7 years (or been physically present for 10, if he or she seeks to adjust status); and (3) he or she must establish that his or her removal would result in “exceptional and extremely unusual hardship” to his or her U.S. citizen (or lawful permanent resident) spouse, parent, or child.

non-immigrant visa, Chicago immigration attorneys, H1B visa, employment-based immigration, green card applicationsMuch ink has been spilled in recent months regarding the H1B visa, which is an employment-based non-immigrant visa that allows specialized professionals to work in the U.S. if sponsored by the relevant company. The current administration has made it clear that a reduced flow of such visas is a priority and, as such, there is a significant amount of misinformation surrounding the H1B visa as of this writing. If you are in a situation where you may apply for or receive one, it is important to understand the truth.

H1Bs Are Limited

Unlike many other visas, the H1B category is perpetually limited and oversubscribed, with demand far exceeding the cumulative 85,000 visas available each fiscal year. It is specifically limited to “specialty occupations,” the criteria for which is specified in the visa manual. A very small number of H1Bs are exempt from the cap, but not enough to make any substantive difference in the years-long queue.

Chicago deportation defense lawyers, immigration enforcement, ICE, due process, Immigration lawIn this day and age, immigration enforcement has taken on an angle that many see as cruel. Media in the U.S. and in other countries have spoken up regarding the behavior of Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE), and immigrant rights groups in the country are making certain that the issue remains at the forefront of discussion.

However, in the midst of the actions being taken against both documented and undocumented immigrants, it is imperative to remember that immigrants, especially the undocumented, have rights. You are entitled to due process, even if you are in ICE custody.

Due Process Rights Are Clear ...

family based immigration, Chicago immigration lawyers, current immigration law, permanent residence, green card holderWith false and misinformed claims regarding family immigration in the news on a seemingly constant basis in recent weeks and months, it is imperative that accurate information find its way to the forefront of the discussion. With malicious claims of “chain migration” being commonplace, it matters that everyone who needs true information about family migration be able to access it. 

MYTH: If you are a naturalized U.S. citizen, you can sponsor any member of your family to immigrate.

TRUTH: This is false. Family-based immigration is restricted in that a naturalized citizen may only sponsor his or her spouse, children, and if he or she is over age 21, his or her siblings and parents. However, the mere ability to sponsor someone does not mean that your family member’s path to legal status in the U.S. will be somehow faster than anyone else’s; it conveys no real advantage, given that every documented immigrant must go through the same process. Also, a sponsor does not mean that a person’s application will be vetted any less stringently than someone’s application for asylum or an employment-based application for status, despite more misleading and inaccurate claims being perpetuated by media and government officials.

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).
