11-year-old boy dies while on the way into the U.S. border

An 11-year-old immigrant from El Salvador lost his life on Thursday, August 6 after suffering from a heat stroke near the Anzalduas International Bridge, south of Mission, Texas – just near the United States border.

A Border Patrol Search, Trauma, and Rescue (BORSTAR) team immediately responded to the accident site once they learned about the incident.

According to the statement released by BORSTAR officials to local news channel KGBT-TV in Harlingten, the boy was unresponsive when emergency medical responders got to him, and so they transported him via helicopter to a local hospital for testing, evaluation, and possible treatment.

Unfortunately, the boy succumbed to his injuries, which were allegedly due to heat exhaustion, the U.S. Border Patrol stated.


Jeb Bush outlines immigration plans

Ahead of the first scheduled Republican primary debates, former Governor of Florida and a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, John Ellis “Jeb” Bush, outlined his immigration plan should he be elected as President of the United States.

The plan has six points and is mostly based on ideas he enumerated in his 2013 book entitled Immigration Wars, which he co-wrote with Phoenix, Arizona-based Goldwater Institute Vice President for litigation, Clint Bolick.

Part of his plan recommends taking away federal funds from sanctuary cities like Austin, Texas in order to bolster enforcement of the country’s immigration laws. However, an article in the Austin American Statesman discussing this immigration plan highlighted the confusion that can surround the term “sanctuary city,” highlighting that for some, the term applies to cities that don’t enforce ICE requested detainers, whereas for others, the term is simply applied to cities where law enforcement officers do not inquire as to a person’s immigration status when stopped or detained.

With constantly changing immigration laws and regulations, applying for and securing the proper visa status is an unfortunately complicated issue. However, by working with an experienced immigration attorney, many are able to quickly and easily secure the proper documentation to live and work in the United States. If you are looking to live or work in the U.S., the Austin immigration lawyers at the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, are ready to put their years of experience and understanding of immigration laws to work for you.

Austin considering issuing city ID cards

A number of leaders in Austin, Texas are pushing for the city to issue their own identification cards to provide fair opportunities to people in the area, regardless of their immigration status.

Austin is known for being an immigrant-friendly city, and took great pains last year along with 14 other cities to announce its cause, according to Immigration Rights Coalition member Nora De La Rosa.

The Austin City Council met at the Travis County Commissioners Court on Thursday, August 7 in the hopes of getting the city manager to put the option of instituting the IDs on the table. These cards would make it much easier for individuals to secure health care, visit their children in school, and participate in a number of other important services.

The Austin immigration attorneys at the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, have the experience, training, and resources necessary to successfully handle any immigration issues that you or your loved ones may have.

Obama should have answer on immigration issues by end of summer

Senior White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer has stated that United States President Barack Obama will decide by the end of the summer on how to address concerns regarding immigrants who are in the country illegally.

As to rumors that Obama might hesitate on the deportation of at least 5 million of these immigrants, Pfeiffer said these rumors are hearsay and “uninformed speculation.”

Pfeiffer stated that Obama is awaiting recommendations from Attorney General Eric Holder and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, and that any initiative of the administration will be within the “confines of the law”.

Pfeiffer said Obama will be acting in his own capacity as president due to Congress’ failure to adequately repair the country’s immigration system, including allocating money to help deal with the increasing problem of children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

If you are looking to come to the United States, the existing rules and regulations can make it very complicated and difficult to do so.
