Pictured below is another client that Forney Roth has helped with the complex process of consular processing. We helped our client with a waiver of inadmissibility as well as the consular process which enabled him to become a permanent resident!
Immigration courts have recently been criticized and spoofed by a couple late night comedy shows. The first, by Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, featured an in depth, and somewhat disheartening look at the immigration court system. Oliver provides statistics as well as anecdotal stories about immigrants' experiences with the court system, while providing some laughs along the way. The link is below.
Our client Miguel, featured below with his family and our staff member Lucy, was able to successfully complete the difficult consular process and become a resident, with help from our firm. We are always happy to serve our clients, especially with the most complex parts of immigration law. Traditionally the consular process involves three separate steps. The first being a petition from a relative to provide the intending immigrant with the benefit of a visa. The second usually an application to waive issues that may keep an immigrant from coming to the United States. The third part is dealing with the consulate to help the immigrant obtain the final visa and come into the United States to becomea resident.
The big wins are always awesome, but the small successes matter as well, and drive us to help our clients every day. For example, Jose pictured below recently received his residency, thanks to the hard work of our attorneys and staff. We are happy that we could help him navigate the complex immigration process to achieve his goals!
New article out from Mother Jones yesterday regarding the Judge who presided over the Postville ICE Raids and subsequent federal prosecutions. The Postville ICE Raids are still known among the Crimmigration bar as a low point in terms of due process for immigrants.
President Trump announced today his support for the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE) Act, a bill which intends to cut several categories of immigrants to the United States and with the purpose of lowering legal immigration to the United States by 50%.
We decided to upgrade our website, and thus our blog. Roth, the amateur web designer, was getting too busy actually practicing law to continually update the website and maintain it. Also maybe a little too busy to blog, which is why the website has been live for over a month and this is the first post, which is really a test post to try out the new platform. Please keep checking back for future posts. I'm going to go back to blogging about criminal law, immigration law, and the practice of law in general. Immigration law in particular has seen a few recent and interesting caselaw changes. I hope you enjoy the new blog.
