  • Is Obama really committed while states run wild?



    President Obama is deeply committed to fixing our immigration laws and has been aggressively searching for partners in Congress who are willing to work with him to pass a new law. As he focuses on building a new 21st century immigration system that meets our nation’s economic and security needs, the President has a responsibility to enforce the existing laws in a smart and effective manner. This means making decisions that best focus the resources that Congress gives the Executive Branch to do this work. read more here



    Earlier this month, the Justice Department filed a lawsuit against Alabama’s H.B. 56, which is considered the nation’s most harsh state-level immigration-enforcement law. It grants police broad powers to detain people they suspect are undocumented, makes it a crime to aide undocumented persons, bars sanctuary policies, and forces school to check students’ immigration status among other things.

    But Alabama’s immigration law is only one of hundreds enacted this year by state legislatures. With the immigration reform debate stalled in Washington, state lawmakers—particularly those on the right—have moved aggressively to fill the void. read more here

        CONSUMER ADVISORY
        DO NOT BE MISLED
        The Obama Administration’s Immigration
        Announcement is NOT an Amnesty Program!
        What the new policy is NOT:
        ? The Obama Administration announcement is NOT an
        amnesty, it is NOT about granting legal status, and is NOT
        something that you can sign-up for!
        The Obama Administration made very clear that the announcements do NOT
        provide any way to “apply” for a work permit or “EAD” nor is there a new way to
        apply to remain in the United States. The change announced is not about giving
        people work permits or legal status. The announcement applies ONLY to cases
        already in the system, ensuring that low priority cases do not continue to clog
        up an already overburdened immigration court system.
        WARNING!
        Do NOT believe anyone who tells you they can sign you up for a work permit
        (Employment Authorization Document or “EAD”) or get you legal status
        based on the Secretary Napolitano’s August 18, 2011 announcement!
        Anyone who says that is not to be trusted!
        There is NO “safe” way to turn yourself in to immigration and there is NO
        guarantee that your case will be considered “low priority.” ANY person who
        comes into contact with immigration authorities may be arrested, detained
        or even removed.
        Only a QUALIFIED IMMIGRATION LAWYER can evaluate your case and tell
        your about your rights.
        Do NOT seek legal advice from a notario or immigration consultant.
        For more information about avoiding immigration scams go to
        www.StopNotarioFraud.org What the new policy IS:
        The Obama Administration announced the creation of a high-level working group made
        up of Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice officials who are to
        do the following:
        ? Review all cases already pending before the immigration courts. Those that are
        considered “low priority” may be administratively closed. Those that are
        considered a “high priority” will be prosecuted more aggressively.
        ? There are no rules or guarantees that a particular type of case will be considered
        a “low” or “high” priority. Recent guidelines are helpful, but no one can tell you if
        your case is a low priority--only immigration authorities will make that decision.
        ? In the future, immigration authorities will review the cases people before they are
        placed in removal proceedings. Those that are “low priority” may not be referred
        to the immigration court.
        ? Create department-wide guidance to help USCIS, CBP, and ICE agents and
        officers make better, more consistent decisions about who to place in removal
        proceedings.
        ? Issue guidance on providing discretion in compelling cases for persons who
        already have a final order of removal.
        In other words, the August 18
        th
        announcement was preliminary and nothing has been
        implemented yet. Any details about how the review process will work, what cases will
        be considered low priority or how to have a particular case considered have not been
        decided.
        The best course of action is to consult an immigration lawyer or accredited
        representative, not to take action because a friend, neighbor or coworker
        encourages you to act.
        An online directory of AILA attorneys is available at www.ailalawyer.com

        Even if a friend, neighbor or coworker encourages you to act, do NOT try to contact
        immigration authorities or fall for a scam! At this time, there is NO application to
        fill out, NO form that can be filed, NO filing fee that can be paid and NO
        guidance from immigration authorities AT ALL as to how the review of cases
        will happen. Eventually, as the government decides how to proceed, that information
        should be available from official government websites, such as USCIS.gov and
        USICE.gov, this website or the website of the American Immigration Lawyers
        Association, www.aila.org. To locate an immigration attorney, including searches by
        location, practice area and language skills, you can find an online directory of AILA
        attorneys at www.ailalawyer.com.
