Need for deportation defense grows by the hour

Residents of New York would likely admit that though there are certainly no shortage of news stories surrounding immigration issues, they still find themselves confused. Recently, the need for deportation defense rose exponentially across the state. People report that they have witnessed the troubles of friends and family members that have been targeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement and similar agencies in an attempt to prevent undocumented immigrants from living in the United States. 

Unfortunately, many immigrants have been living in the country for decades without incident. They have homes, families, jobs and friends here. Recent changes to U.S. immigration law have made many immigrants fear they will be taken from all they know and love, and sent to a country that they find alien and unfamiliar. 

Even if an undocumented immigrant has not been in any trouble with the law, he or she may still one day find the need to present a deportation defense. It can be frightening to face an immigration court, and many may feel that their lives are in limbo as they wait weeks, months or sometimes years to go before a judge. They may feel frightened and worry that they do not have a good enough understanding of immigration law to defend themselves. 

In the state of New York, many find it helpful to rely upon an attorney that is experienced in presenting a deportation defense. An immigration attorney will be up to speed on the latest changes to immigration laws. Utilizing a lawyer to assist can help immigrants feel confident of their options and give them an ally to protect their interests at every stage of the proceedings.
