President Trump’s 1/25/2017 Executive Orders on Immigration Enforcement

Immigration enforcement efforts will be stepped up in a very significant manner, and if you have not yet sought the advice of a licensed and competent immigration attorney regarding your situation, NOW IS THE TIME TO DO SO to protect your legal rights and explore legal options for fighting deportation.

ANYONE who does not have lawful status in the US is subject to being detained by immigration officers at any time.  Anyone charged with a crime or even detained by state or local law enforcement may face immigration detention.  However, if you are a VICTIM of a crime, you should report the crime to local authorities and seek advice of an immigration attorney to protect your rights as a victim.

At this time, it is unclear whether people who are detained will be allowed to post any type of bond for release.  Foreign nationals who are required to report to ICE should consult an attorney prior to reporting, as we have received reports that ICE is detaining some people who appear for reporting date.  If you have an immigration court date, DO NOT MISS IT, as an immigration judge may order you removed in your absence.

This is a developing situation, so please contact us if you have immediate questions or concerns.

Órdenes ejecutivas del presidente Trump en 1/25/2017 sobre Inmigración y Control

Los esfuerzos de inmigración incrementarán de manera muy significativa, y si usted todavía no ha solicitado el asesoramiento de un abogado de inmigración competente y titulado, con respecto a su situación, AHORA ES EL MOMENTO DE HACERLO, para proteger sus derechos legales y explorar opciones legales para evitar su deportación.

CUALQUIER persona que no tiene estatus legal en los EE.UU. está sujeta a ser detenido por agentes de inmigración en cualquier momento. Cualquier persona acusada de un crimen o incluso detenida por la policía local o estatal, pueden enfrentar el ser detenido por inmigración.  Sin embargo, si usted es una VICTIMA de un crimen, usted debe reportar el crimen a las autoridades locales y busque asesoramiento de un abogado de inmigración para proteger sus derechos como víctima.

En este momento, no es claro si las personas que son detenidas se les permitirán ser libres bajo fianza. Los extranjeros que están obligados a reportar a ICE deben consultar a un abogado antes de reportar, ya que hemos recibido informes de que ICE está deteniendo a algunas personas que se han presentado a reportar.  Si usted tiene una cita en la corte de inmigración, NO FALTE, un juez de inmigración puede ordenar su deportación debido a su ausencia.

Aún se está desarrollando esta situación, así que por favor contáctenos si tiene preocupaciones o preguntas inmediatas.
