Advice for U.S. citizens on helping non-U.S. relatives immigrate to the U.S.

Regardless of nationality, for many people throughout the world, family is everything.

Know your rights: tips to avoid possible removal and deportation actions

In our Jan. 8 blog post, we discussed the recent raids conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the government's continued attempts to deport individuals from violence-ravaged Central American countries who are seeking asylum in the U.S. While some people may previously believe that only hardened criminals or those who enter the U.S. illegally have to worry about being deported, ICE's recent actions prove otherwise as the targets were primarily women and children.

The legality of an executive action taken by Obama may soon be under scrutiny by the U.S. Supreme Court, which was set to meet today to determine whether to hear the case.

Women and children among those detained in recent ICE raids

In our last blog post, we reported on the rumored impending raids by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to find undocumented Central American immigrates.

Central American immigrants prepare for rumored ICE raids

Since being sworn in as president in 2008, President Barak Obama has been vocal about his plans to reform U.S. immigration policy.

He has, however, invoked his executive power to make certain changes to existing immigration laws.
