Form I-130 and the road to legal immigration

There are many benefits afforded to an individual who is born outside of the U.S. and decides to take steps to become a U.S. citizen. In addition to being able to legally live and work in the U.S., an individual who is granted permanent U.S. citizenship status is also allowed to sponsor relatives who wish to immigrate to and become U.S. permanent residents.

Coerced into signing voluntary return forms, Mexican citizens allowed to legally return to U.S.

America proudly declares that is it the "land or the free and the home of the brave." The unalienable rights of U.S. citizens are well-documented in the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence. Under the decrees of these and other founding U.S. documents, citizens are protected from governmental overreaches related to unauthorized search and seizure and the right to due process.

Is the Priority Enforcement Program the solution to the illegal immigration problem?

U.S. Immigration is a hot-button issue with strong and opposing positions on both sides. From those U.S. residents who contend that the U.S. must clamp down on all immigration to those who argue for more lenient and humane policies, the issues related to immigration are complex and polarizing and unfortunately there is no right or simple solution.

After asylum has been granted

The process of petitioning for asylum here in the U.S. can be a very legally complex one. It can also be a very emotional one, given how much can be at stake for the person seeking asylum. Thus, when a petitioner for asylum has their petition granted, they may feel a massive amount of relief.

Does the U.S. recognize dual citizenship?

Throughout the world, a U.S. passport is a coveted status. While U.S. citizens rarely forfeit their citizenship rights, there are ways that an individual can hold dual citizenship and be considered a U.S. citizen at the same time he or she is a citizen of another country. For individuals who are or wish to be in this position, it's critical to fulfill citizenship obligations of both countries as failure to do so may result in loss of U.S. citizenship.
