Those who are facing immigration issues in South Florida know how frustrating these cases can be. Many times, immigrants need to go to court for a myriad of reasons. But recently, the high number of immigration cases has created a backlog in Florida courts.
As many people in Florida are aware, President Donald J. Trump recently rescinded the DACA law and outlined the phase out of the program over the next six months in another change to U.S. Immigration Law. In the meantime, Congress could pass laws on this issue. However, until that happens the phase out will take place. There are many so-called "Dreamers" in Florida who may be affected by this phase out and many want to know how they will be affected immediately.
There are many laws in Florida that try to ensure people do not harm others or themselves. If people violate these laws, they commit crimes. If people are ultimately convicted of the crime, they could face different punishment depending on the severity of the offense. However, many people find out that the punishment from the court is not always the worse punishment that comes with a conviction.
As many people in Miami are well aware, President Donald J. Trump has been trying to pass a travel ban order over the last few months. An injunction was placed on the travel ban by Federal Circuit Courts in parts of the US, but a final decision had not been made as to its legality. The US Supreme Court finally decided to hear the matter, but will not make a final decision until October. However, in the mean time they lifted the injunction on portions of the travel ban until they can make a final decision.
The immigration policy of the United States is in flux with the debates regarding travel bans and walls that have arisen with the presidency of Donald J. Trump. Even with that, other issues have continued as before. Florida residents who are in the U.S. after seeking asylum and those who have relatives who are trying to do so must be aware of the current realities. The ongoing problems in Venezuela illustrate this as it is one of the countries that has the largest number of people seeking to come to the U.S. for safety reasons.
The United States has long been known as a sanctuary for those who are seeking protection as a refugee and need asylum. Many who come to the U.S. with legal status under difficult circumstances are in Florida. With the substantive changes to policy in the era or President Donald J. Trump, many of these groups are fearful that their status will be called into question or they will be deported. Having legal assistance with this area of US immigration law is imperative for those who are worried about these matters.
In today's political climate, it is becoming troublesome to be an immigrant in the United States for any reason. Floridians who are in the U.S. seeking to be able to stay in the country to protect them from persecution, from a program to help after a natural disaster, or for any other reason that stems from compassionate grounds will undoubtedly feel consternation regarding potential changed by the new presidential administration of Donald J. Trump. One group whose concerns are coming to the forefront in the current climate are Haitians who are worried about the possibility of being forced to return to their country while it is ravaged by illness and earthquakes.
In an ongoing and public debate, the United States is taking steps to try and tamp down on illegal immigration. A part of that has involved not just stopping people from coming in illegally or coming in with legal status and overstaying their visas, but it has extended to arrests and deportations, even for those who have roots, started a family and been in Miami, in the U.S. contributing to the economy and paying taxes for many years. These people are often law abiding citizens and are trying to gain the right to stay in the U.S. legally.
Immigrants in Florida and across the nation are justifiably concerned over the implementation of new protocols with admission and residence in the United States. The still-relatively new presidential administration of Donald J. Trump is finding its way when it comes to campaign rhetoric and how close to the letter of the law they want the enforcement to be. That has left a great many people concerned about their legal status, wondering whether they can get a visa, and what will happen if they were once classified as a protected refugee. Having legal help with US immigration law can be useful in navigating these troubled waters.
