Austin immigrant families worried about living under Trump

Immigrant families in central Texas communicated feelings of anxiousness that President-elect Donald Trump will deliver on his campaign promise to deport millions of immigrants from the United States.

One such person is Alex, a single mother who has two boys, one of whom was born in the country. She is hoping his citizenship can afford her children some protection from deportation, saying, “America is the country for opportunities, right, so I decided to take the opportunities for my kids and for myself, too.”

Two policies of President Barack Obama likely to be scrapped once Trump assumes the presidency are the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which enables children brought to the country illegally to stay and work here temporarily, and the Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA), which provides protection for undocumented parents of American citizens.

As immigration attorneys, we at the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC know how challenging it is for many immigrants in this country – from the first step of processing immigration papers to actually living in the United States. If you are faced with an immigration issue, seek the legal help of our attorneys, who provide legal service in Austin and other areas in Texas, by calling our offices today at (512) 323-2333.


ICE practice of detaining prisoners deemed illegal

A federal district court order from the Northern District of Illinois says it is illegal for federal authorities with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to issue a detainer on people detained within local law enforcement.

Explaining the decision, Director of the Immigration Clinic at the University of Texas School of Law Denise Gilman said: “The entire way in which ICE issues and implements its detainer program right now is likely unlawful. Because ICE isn’t going before any court, any magistrate, anybody at all to have a finding of probable cause.”

Texas Civil Rights Project community director Zenen Jaimes welcomed this development and added: “Thankfully I’m in a place where you know, we’re fighting some of these abuses that we still think happen in Travis Country and all over the state.”

Austin families await Supreme Court decision on immigration case

Families in Austin are eager to hear the result of the Supreme Court’s decision in United States v. Texas, a case which challenges the DACA and DAPA immigration reforms enforced by President Barack Obama.

The Obama administration asked the Supreme Court to review its 2014 immigration plans that would allow the stay of 5 million immigrants in the country and make it easier for them to obtain work permits. In January, the justices said they were open to overturning lower court rulings that blocked the plans from taking effect. Jose Nunez is one of those awaiting the results of the hearing. He is protected by Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA), after moving to the United States in 2004. He currently works as a plumber.

Obama to pass immigration reform by end of year

President Barack Obama has vowed to enact national comprehensive immigration reform measures through executive action before 2014 ends, Democracy Now reported on November 6.

Speaking at a news conference one day after the Republicans’ recent midterm victory, Obama re-asserted this promise, which he had delayed from the end of summer until after the midterm elections. Obama has yet to disclose definitive details of the measure he intends to pass, but it is rumored that relief will be given to the deportations that have been happening on a large scale.

Border cannot contain influx of Central American children

President Barack Obama’s administration requested a $2-billion budget from Congress to deal with the wave of children illegally crossing the Mexican border to escape poverty and violence in Central America, the Associated Press reported on June 23.

Investigation revealed that children who illegally immigrate to the United States can often reside in the country for a long time, attending public schools and getting jobs without being deported. This is because of the backlog  in courts of immigration cases and the extensive time a deportation case can take. Because of this extended process, perceptions have been created abroad that children can stay in U.S. for a long time or that Congress is going to relax immigration laws, which is unlikely to happen.
