Immigration reform advocates hold 35 mile march to Governor’s Mansion

Austin, Texas-based nonprofit organization Workers Defense Project has held a demonstration that called for immigration reform by conducting a 35-mile protest march from the T. Don Hutto Residential Center in Williamson County, an area which houses asylum-seeking immigrants, to the Governor’s Mansion in downtown Austin.

Texas Governor Gregory Abbott has been staunchly opposed to immigration reform during his time in office, as evidenced by his filing a lawsuit in December of last year that sought to halt an executive action by President Barack Obama that would delay the deportation of around 5 million illegal immigrants. The Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with a Texas judge’s injunction of Obama’s initiatives in a ruling issued in November of this year.

The WDP advocated hope Gov. Abbott will recognize their cause as they seek to inform him that nearly 70 percent of Texans support immigration reform. At the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, our legal team of immigration attorneys work to assist immigrants as they apply for temporary and permanent visas in order to live and work in the United States.

Abbott’s immigration actions denounced by protesters

People from all over the state of Texas who are opposed to Texas Governor Gregory Wayne Abbott’s views and actions regarding immigration reform marched on the streets of Austin, Texas until they reached the Governor’s Mansion on Saturday, November 21, a day which, incidentally, is the first anniversary of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA). The marchers were attempting to call Governor Abbott’s attention to what they believe to be misguided opinions and political errors on his part in relation to immigration reform.

Aside from showing their support for the DAPA initiative, the people in the march also supported the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which was started by United States President Barack Obama in 2012 and made it possible for undocumented immigrant children to obtain their first identification cards, get legal work permits, and avoid deportation.

Austin city leaders ask Texas to reconsider DAPA suit

Although Texas is one of the most vocal among the states objecting to President Obama’s executive measure to delay the deportation of some undocumented immigrants in the United States, not all of the state’s leaders agree with former state attorney general, now Governor, Greg Abbott’s lawsuit. In fact, two officials, Austin Mayor Steve Adler and Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt, have spoken out against the state’s attempts to fight the President’s plan.

Twenty-six states, including Texas, filed a lawsuit last December to block the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents program, also called DAPA, a measure which would allow certain immigrants who have lived in the U.S. since 2010 and are parents of legal citizens to be exempt from deportation for a temporary period.

In a rally held on Saturday, October 13, Adler urged Texas Governor Gregory Wayne Abbott to meet with immigrant families in the community so that he could understand their plight.

Groups decry blocking of immigration programs

Many immigration groups marched all over the country on March 19 to protest the postponement of President Barack Obama’s immigration action, NBC News reported.

Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) and the expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programs would protect millions of illegal immigrants from deportation.

Ehiracenia Vazquez, a 30-year-old mother of two United States citizens who currently reside in Texas, said she has all the documents she needs to apply for a U.S. citizenship–like her birth certificate, passport, and proof that she has been living in the country for more than 10 years–but because DAPA has been put in limbo, she has been unable to do so.

The attorneys at the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, in Austin understand the nuances of immigration law, and may help you throughout the application process for visas or citizenship. Call our offices today at (512) 323-2333 to schedule an appointment with us.


Clinton advocates for immigration action during campaign

Former United States Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton stated on May 6 that comprehensive immigration legislation should create a path to citizenship and rallied behind President Barrack Obama’s use of executive decision to install a measure that would have effectively delayed deportation of millions of illegal immigrants in the United States, FOX 7 News reported.

Clinton said at a Las Vegas, Nevada high school that Obama’s move was necessary in the face of Congress’ lack of action on the controversial issue of addressing immigration in the country, and promised to pursue paths to citizenship through the legislature if elected.

No matter the political field in the U.S., the attorneys of the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, in Austin represent those pursuing paths of citizenship or visas in the country.
