USCIS acts to change US immigration law

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has recently released information indicating a desire to make historic changes in some of their policies. The changes will create dramatic shifts in US immigration law and will potentially reduce the number of individuals approved to work in the United States. Foreign workers based in New York may experience the effects of the recently announced policy changes. 

225 arrested on immigration charges in New York

A recent sweep resulted in the arrests of 225 individuals. All were detained on immigration charges in the state of New York. The arrests were made by Immigration Customs and Enforcement during its six day Operation Keep Safe In New York. 

Changes in US immigration law end advice for detainees

Laws for individuals attempting to relocate to this country have been rapidly shifting lately, and a new wave of laws brings new changes. One recent change to US immigration law is that a program offering free legal advice to immigrants in detention centers in the United States will be ended. Other laws seek to end the way asylum seekers are handled at the border and adopt a zero-tolerance policy on border crossings. New York immigrants facing detention and deportation will have less resources available to them and may need to reach out for outside independent help. 

Citizenship process can be costly

For some, their dream is to come to America and try their hand at the American Dream. Immigration can be a costly and lengthy process, and trying to cut corners can have detrimental effects. If a person is deported, he or she may not get the opportunity to ever gain U.S. citizenship. Individuals in New York who wish to become U.S. citizens should understand the processes and costs associated with it.
