This country is going through an immigration crisis, and not the one you hear about on the news every night. What is not being reported is that immigration courts have been set up that are ill equipped to handle all of the deportation cases currently in the system. This has led to an unconstitutional deportation process that is unacceptable.
If you or a loved one in this area is facing deportation, it is vital that you speak with an immigration attorney in Salt Lake City. At Familia America, we understand that this can be an emotional experience and we want to help ensure you and your family are treated fairly.
A New System
The number of people being deported from the United States has reached a record high and many of those deported never get a fair hearing in their case.
President Trump recently said that those accused of illegally immigrating into the country should be deported without judges or court cases. We can’t imagine anything more un-American than not giving someone on US soil due process in every criminal case.
Because of the backlog of immigration cases, the government is considering using retired immigration judges to help speed the process up. While we would usually applaud getting people alleged of crimes into court faster, we are afraid this will only mean more people will be deported without a fair hearing.
There are over 700,000 open deportation cases in this country with the number climbing higher every day. If you or a loved one are involved in one of these cases, please seek legal advice so that you know your rights.
A Second Chance
The current administration has attempted to paint all illegal immigrants as criminals. The truth is far from that. Most people that come to the United States are seeking a better life for themselves and their families. Whether they are coming for better economic prospects or fleeing gang violence from Mexico or Central America, they are willing take a chance in a place that offers a sense of hope.
Many people come to the US because they’ve been threatened or they worry their children may become involved in gangs or other illegal activities. These are not the criminals that the government would like you to think they are.
Everyone who comes into this country has the right to apply for political asylum if they fear that returning to their home country would put their life in jeopardy. We want to ensure that their rights are upheld.
