  • Immigration practice outside the US

    Hello all,

    I am an American and work for a law firm in Mexico. I studied law in the US and have worked for attorneys there and am enrolled in law school in Mexico and am bilingual. I'm receiving a steady stream of referrals of people with US immigration issues. Any help would be appreciated.

    I guess the first step would be to ask what is the best way to get info on a person, all the info the government has for a non citizen so we can see what has happened?

    Typical issues so far are parents deported with kids, people who got caught crossing and now want to reapply for a visa and others who feel they didn't get a fair shake and want their matter looked into. Does the immigration court have online access like PACER for the Federal Courts?

    I've found FOIA information for USCIS but it seems a bit tougher for CBP, any sample forms for people's records who were crossing illegally or doing something not 100% correct?

    Thanks in advance

      Hi Intercasa and welcome to ILW.

      I am afraid I can't help you but hopefully someone can, if not tonight, tomorrow.

      Also, there is another board on here for lawyers only. Maybe a lawyer from your firm could post in that section and get some feedback for your questions ?

      Hope you find your answers

        How do I get access to the lawyer board? I've looked around but perhaps the powers that be will grant me access. 2 other attorneys in the firm speak decent English but I head up all things where excellent English is required or that involves the US or law there.

        Thanks!

          A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request is the best way. Hit up both ICE and CBP for their sets of records on a particular alien.

              Okay, we get it. You hate Mexicans. Care to share where that came from? Did you marry one and it turned sour? You are consumed with bitterness and you should find a way to resolve it. Aint going to happen on this forum, btw.

                  Americans think they are too good to work construction jobs anymore. Maybe with this bad economy, things will change.

                      No, I'm not going to stop. In our experience, we've always tried to hire Americans first. Why? Because we are American and believe they should have the first job opportunities. First American we hired for a superintendant job spent his days downloading p.orn on the company computer. Didn't find that out until we had another reason to fire him. Second American we hired for a superintendant job couldn't get along with any of the owners or subs. Third American superintendant that we hired stole from us - thousands, I might add. We've never had a qualified American respond to a job ad for carpenter, much less laborer. So, we go through the process and look at the documents that are handed in for the I-9, they appear to be valid. Find out a few years down the road that 2 weren't. We didn't intentionally hire illegals at our company, but I will say their work ethics were stellar in comparison to those American superintendants we hired. And, we paid them very good wages. Not trying to undercut the competition by any means.

                      Find another reason to attack me.

                          Yeah, right. You hate Americans and everything America stands for, but yet you're reaping the benefits of living in a free country that you refuse to accept? Despictable.
