Report shows sharp increase in immigration charges in NYC

Immigrants are a vital part of New York. Even so, undocumented people have faced a great deal of scrutiny in recent years. A recent report filed by the New York City comptroller reports there has been a rapid increase in the activities of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He wants to see greater protections for immigrants and fewer immigration charges.

Employment immigration: Bill seeks to end threats of deportation

Those people who come to this country as undocumented often find employment with various businesses. Some of these companies exploit those undocumented workers by paying them less money than what would be considered acceptable by the standards of most American workers. The workers can feel as though they have no way to report their employers, as doing so may make them vulnerable to deportation. However, new legislation here in New York related to employment immigration seeks to remedy that, by clarifying an existing law to include protections for undocumented workers.

Reports of undocumented immigration are all over the New York news these days, with many people on both sides of the debate.

He is facing immigration charges that claims he is not in the country legally.

Those who support immigration are pointing to a new study that indicates that New York has seen significant positive economic impact from its immigrant population.
