Immigrant Communities Face Uncertainty as Trump Administration Issues New Rules

The Trump administration recently issued new guidelines that allow federal authorities and local police to crack down on undocumented immigration.

Although the guidelines will take some time to implement, immigrants in Arizona and throughout the country are deeply concerned about their future and the future of their loved ones. If you are worried about your immigration status or that of a family member, take action now to protect yourself. Speak with an immigration lawyer

The new rules appear to be designed to expand raids and broaden the definition of "criminal aliens."

Under the new rules, the only undocumented immigrants who will remain exempt from removal are those who are protected under DACA -- or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which was started by President Obama.

The new rules also:

  • Allow immigration agents in the interior of the U.S. -- not just the borders -- to remove any immigrants who are unable to prove they have been in the country for at least two years
  • Essentially deputize local police as immigration agents
  • Make parents and other adults subject to deportation or prosecution if they help children enter the U.S. without the proper documentation

Whether you are concerned about your immigration status or your loved one is facing deportation, you need an experienced immigration lawyer on your side.
