Barack Obama leaves behind bleak outlook for national immigration policy

United States President Barack Obama said his policies on immigration reform would somehow prevail, but that voters would have to decide on their continuity with the next president that they are going to elect.

When Obama vacates The White House in January 2017, immigration reform will serve as his most evident misstep in his 7 and 1 ½-year effort in trying to bring about social change, only enacting temporary changes on the immigration system and leaving behind no proper channels with which to make the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the country tread their way towards a path to citizenship.

Obama will be seen as the president who protected 730,000 young people, who were brought to the U.S. illegally, from immediate deportation. Allies will remember that he asserted the use of executive power that even though was brought down by the courts and political opposition, would pave the way for the next president to make a legal precedent.

Many people all over the world are looking to the United States to travel, move in, and start their new lives. If you are immigrant in Austin, Texas and you are having problems with your visa and immigration status, our lawyers at Law Office of William Jang, PLLC can legally help you address your concerns when you call our offices today at .

Supreme Court rules on Obama’s immigration executive action

With a 4-4 deadlock, the United States Supreme Court upheld the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision against President Barack Obama’s executive action last Thursday, June 23. The action in question aimed to delay the deportation of undocumented immigrants.

Obama’s executive order would have shielded around 4 million illegal immigrants – largely the parents of children considered American citizens – from deportation. The action also sought to give immigrants the right to apply for work authorization and the ability to participate in the Social Security system.

U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen accepted the state of Texas’ argument that Obama’s immigration order could cause harm to the state by mandating it to give driver’s licenses to additional undocumented immigrants. The Obama administration argued that Texas voluntarily gives out driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants, and the state could decide not to give out licenses if it wanted to. Even so, the executive order was blocked, a ruling the Supreme Court upheld.

Analysts say immigration ruling reeks of venue shopping

Some say the ruling in February by a federal judge stopping an executive action instituted by President Barack Obama reveals a rampant practice in federal district courts – venue shopping.

Obama’s executive action would in effect defer the deportation of around 500,000 illegal immigrants in the United States in good standing. According to immigration advocates, Texas lawyers ultimately chose a court in the state wherein they can find judges sympathetic to their position when they filed their case in Brownsville. The lawyers, on the other hand, replied by saying attorneys usually do this as a strategy tactic, and statistical evidence has showed that this is commonly used in civil rights and personal injury cases.

Rising political tensions has even made legal immigration efforts more difficult in some cases.
