- To Achieve Changes in Immigration, we need to Vote 10/1/2015
Did you know that more than 25 million Hispanics have the right to vote? But experts predict that only half will vote. As a result, we will not get the changes we need in Congress and in The Presidency, to achieve an Immigration Reform with half of the Hispanic vote. We need to get out to vote to achieve a 70 to 80 percent of people voting. Because, if you do not go to vote you can forget an Immigration Reform in Congress. If we do not vote, the new president could be Donald Trump that is attacking us. My advice is we need to get out and vote massively. On the other hand, we must also take advantage of current Immigration laws because instead of improve it may get worsen. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. If you have a personal question about your immigration case, please call (888-578-2276) Thank you.
- Battle to Obtain a Legal Status 9/30/2015
Numbers do not lie, 40 percent of people who are undocumented have come legally, many of them as tourists. But 60 percent, the majority, have crossed the border illegally. The great battle is to obtain The Permanent Resident Status after the person has entered illegally. At present, there are different ways to do it. For example, The Waiver within the Country for all categories of family petitions, Because of this reason is very important to have a family petition. Another way is to have a child that file for their parents. The children can enter to military force to get a legal entry or the last one is to wait for the Executive Action to be unlocked. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. If you have a personal question about your immigration case, please call (888-578-2276) Thank you.

- Pending Cases in Immigration Court 9/23/2015
Currently there are over 456,000 pending cases in immigration court. That means they can be delays that can take years. The Congress does not consider the possibility of granting more funds in order to have more judges in Immigration Court. The delays are favoring immigrants because they can be delays of up to four years. Therefore, audiences are being taken to 2019. For someone who does not have a solution this is very good news because the delay time is like a godsend because immigrants can expect a change in the law while waiting the audience. The point is that we have a Congress that does not consider any law in favor of immigrants. Those who have a pending hearing should have an immigration attorney review your case to find a possible solution to present the Judge. In conclusion, the candidate Donald Trump is not the only anti-immigrant because Congress is too. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank you.

But the waiting time varies constantly. The key is to find out if you qualify for The Waiver and how faster your claim could be. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank You.
- Campaign of the President Obama 9/18/2015
President Obama has begun a campaign of Citizenship for 8.8 million Residents who qualify for Citizenship. Approximately 6 million Immigrants who qualify for Residency are Hispanic. It means that the campaign of President Obama benefits, mostly Hispanics. Most of those Hispanics are Mexican. This campaign is at the perfect time, because it is right before the Presidential Elections. The Citizenship process is accelerating because in a few weeks will be more than 200 ceremonies and will make citizens more than 36 thousand people. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank you.
- Republicans Debate 9/17/2015
Republicans Debate was in the library of President Ronald Reagan. This president was remembered as one of the most recognized and popular for its excellent trajectory’s record that made him one of the best President of the United States. He signed an amnesty that legalized three million of undocumented Immigrants in the United States. The position of President Reagan was completely opposite to the position of the Republican Candidates. These Republicans Candidates are against immigration, especially Donald Trump, who wants to deport all undocumented immigrants. We wish, the Republican Candidates could follow the example and change their thoughts to make them look more like President Ronald Reagan. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank you.
- U.S Opportunity to Become Citizens and Vote 9/15/2015

Most of the 6 million residents who qualify to become US Citizens, are Mexican. Therefore, now is the time to apply for Citizenship because you need unite together against the attacks of the most popular Republican Candidate right now, Donald Trump.

Thank you.
- Changes in the Process of Family Requests 9/11/2015
There are changes in the process of family petitions. This is great news because Immigration previously published dates, which the Resident’s Visa was available to apply. In this moment Immigration will publish two dates, the date that is available receive the Resident’s Visa and the date when the inmigrant can apply for a Legal Status. It turns out that date, when you can apply for a Legal Status, with the family petition, will be a year before the expected date of receive the Resident’s Visa. Therefore, depending on the category, we must take advantage of this because you basically can benefit one year from the process of family petitions. My advice is to you to get inform with your Immigration Attorney and take advantage of the changes. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank you.
- Immigrant children in armed forces 9/9/2015
If the children of an immigrant enlist in the USA Military Forces, parents can get a parole, which is a legal entry and work permits. Imagine how good news this is, the requirements are that the child is at least 18 years old and a US Resident or US Citizen. The child has to be active in the Armed Forces. Then the parents can get a parole and obtain a legal entry. Also, when the child is older than 21 years old and American Citizens, the child can file for parents and parents obtained Permanent Resident Status. But my advice is to talk to your children to enlist in the armed forces, at least six months or a year, so you as the parents can get the parole which is the legal entry and work permit. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank you.
- Donald Trump, Consequences of his ideas 9/3/2015
Donald Trump, the presidential candidate who has first place in the Republican polls, says the solution to immigration would be deport all undocumented immigrants. These would be more than 11 million people. How ?, With what resources? And with what money? Deportations would cost around $30,000 per person. The consequence of the idea of Donald Trump would be to spend huge amount f money on deportation. This is ridiculous and absurd, but the moral is that we can not trust Washington. What assurance do we have that we will have a president or a Congress that will help us and pass an Immigration Reform? Therefore we have to rely on what we can do. We have to come up with a plan of action and act. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank You
- New Law in The House of Representatives 9/3/2015
The House of Representatives passed a law against sanctuary cities that protect immigrants. This proposal has to be approved by the Senate, which does not have many possibilities and the president says he’s going to veto, meaning it probably will not become law. But the reality is that there are anti-immigrant direction in Congress because they are not considering immigration reform. Therefore we must use what we have. At present the only change we have is Waiver in the Country for people with family petitions. Therefore we should file family petitions because we don’t see the posibiliy of an immigration reform. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank You
- Survey by the Gallup Poll Agency 9/3/2015
There was a nationwide survey by the most recognized agency in the country called Gallup Poll. The Agency says that 65 percent of Americans agree with a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants in the country. In this survey, only the 19 percent would choose to give them a legal stay, and 14 percent would like to see all immigrants to be deported. What does this mean? It means that to win the presidency in America needs to be in favor of immigration reform with a path to citizenship. Because if not, they go against the will of the people. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank you.
- Man is deported from the United States 9/2/2015
There was a man who really believed in God. He had more than 10 years in the United States. In those ten years he had married and divorced an American Citizen. He had also suffered an assault that almost died. Unfortunately, he suffered from cancer and had to undergo chemotherapy treatments. And the last thing that happened to him, he was driving without a license, as a consequence, immigration put him in jail and he ended deported. Then the client calls me from El Salvador saying, “Lawyer I believe very much in God, so why I did not have the opportunity to stay in the United States”. My answer was, of course he gave you the opportunity because you could have done the residence with the American Citizen wife, or apply for the U Visa for being victim of a crime and had applied for The Visa for Humanitarian Reasons when you had cancer. So you had opportunities to stay in the United States, but he did not take advantage of them. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank you.
- Immigration Center in Great Controversy 9/1/2015
There is great controversy with Immigration Center. Because the court has ordered Immigration to release the children with their mothers, but immigration refuses to release the detainees. Immigration has appealed and has asked the judge to reconsider the decision. This controversy is about 1400 mothers and children who are detained. There are a total of 30,000 detainees. So something must be done before they threatening you with arrest. For example, present a case as a family claim, VISA U, Dreamers Deferred Action, TPS, or something else, so you can defend, because if you have nothing, there is a big future risk arrest or deportation. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank You.
- The Congress of EEUU is Criticized 8/31/2015
The New York Times has strongly criticized the United States Congress. They say that instead of considering laws for immigrants, all what they are considering anti-immigrants legislation. Because this is a problem, urgently we need changes in the United States’s Congress. Because if we don’t have a change, the President may be in favor of immigration reform, but Congress never will never accept an Immigration Reform. Therefore, the Representatives and Senators have to change, if we want a reform in United States. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank You.
- Federates judge orders Immigration to release children 8/24/2015
A federal judge in California has ordered immigration, for the second time to release more than a thousand children. To make more accurate are 1,400 children with their mothers. They are being held in two detention centers in Texas and Pennsylvania. Immigration don’t wanto to release them, despite previous court orders it. Now immigration appeal and orders them for the second time the release. To meet the deadline is until October 23. This is a lawsuit because it seems that these children and mothers are a threat to national security and would endanger American citizens. This makes no sense, so with immigration we have to fight to get the rights we need. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank you.
- Immigrants Deported 8/20/2015
According to the American Civil Liberties Union, they said that the first group of immigrants Mexicans who were deported voluntarily between 2009 and 2014 will return this month. Immigrants who return could be from hundreds to thousands. Specifically these are people who were deported voluntarily Southern California and San Diego after signing a voluntary deportation. This is due to the use of deceptive tricks of Immigration. If you do not qualify under this group, specifically you have to learn the lesson not to sign anything to immigration because you could be signing your deportation. My advice is that before sing any type of document, you must first consult with your attorney to about your rights. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank You.
- Immigrants’s Plan by Donald Trump 8/17/2015
Donald Trump has revealed his plan of Immigration. Everything is against immigrants. He wants to deport all the immigrants, he wants to build a fence along the border, also he want to remove the right of citizenship for people born in the United States. This would particularly affect undocumented immigrants from Mexico, Central and South America by whether their children born in the country would no longer be US citizens. Donald Trump, although this in the first place in the polls of Republicans should not scare us. Instead, we should take to action to ensure that he do not take the presidency. This would obtain American citizenship and getting ready to vote. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank You.
- Changes in Immigration 8/16/2015
At the moment we are going through changes in immigration and we expect more in the future. For example, the Waiver inside the Country for people with family petitions. It could also come the Executive Action that we anticipate it would be unlocked in the Supreme Court. Other changes in Immigration would be, Reduce the Waiting Time at the Family Petitions, the245-I, which if extended, will allow to pay 1000 dollars to the people residing undocumented in the United States. Any change needs a family petition so that is a basic first step. My advice is, if you have a family that you can file the petition, that will be the key to begin a process that would end up in a Legal Status in the future. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank You
- Immigration’s Lawsuit 8/12/2015

In these cells, there are such low temperatures that people can be frozen. In addition the cells are dirty, have no beds, soap, showers, adequate food, water, adequate medical treatment, and no access to lawyers. In conclusion it is an unbearable problem. The idea is not wait to be locked in one of these detention centers.

Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank you.
- Immigration Arrests 8/12/2015
Recently the President Obama’s administration has said it will change or stop the policy for long detentions, for mothers with their children who were arrested coming crossing the border. If they can prove that the mothers will have a persecution is their countries in an initial interview, they are going to request them a bail and release them immediately. This has been a serious problem in the past where mothers have been detained for months. This has been completely wrong and inhumane. Hopefully this is the first change in the arrests in favor of immigrant. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank You
- Waiver Within the Country 8/12/2015
There is a new waiver within the country for all categories of family petitions. Immigration has just signed the initial non-final regulations. But we know that these are and will be great. My advice is that you have to take this regulation. We’ll be talking to those who qualify, when, how, what are the requirements and process. The important thing is to know that if you are listening to me today and you have a family petition, is likely to qualify for a waiver within the country, in order to obtain residency.
- Campaign to alert immigrants 8/11/2015
Immigration has launched a new communication campaign to warn of the risks faced by immigrants trying to travel to the country from Central America and Mexico without the necessary documents. This campaign are four ads that come on TV 30 seconds each.They are titled “Know the rights” The US agency, by this campaign, is directed to the people of El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico, on the dangers of illegal entry into the United States. But what about the people who are already here and risked their lives. These people are in danger of being arrested and deported. Therefore, they have to do something to avoid being deported. My advice is to know what steps to take and for that they need an Immigration Attorney. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank you

- Supreme Court’s Decisions 7/17/2015
President Obama has won nine decisions in the Supreme Court in favor of its policies. Some of the decisions were, Obama Care, Housing Discrimination and the final decision of the Supreme Court was to support same-sex marriage across the country. This means that same-sex couples can also claim for residency. Therefore, it is quite likely that the Supreme Court also support the Executive Action to give benefit to 5 million immigrants with work permits. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank You
- Hearing in The Court of Appeals 7/17/2015
The Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit finally held the hearing on President Obama’s Executive Action on the subject of immigration. Both sides presented their cases. The detail is that two of the three judges who will take the decision were those who maintained the blockade of the Executive Action in May. They said that President Obama had little chance of winning the Final Judgment. The situation in the Court of Appeals will be very difficult. On the other hand, we hope to win in the Supreme Court where President Obama recently won victories in cases of family, insurance, trade and discrimination. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank You
- Obama’s Contribution 7/10/2015
Did you know that according to the American Center for Progress, The Executive Action by President Obama will contribute 164 million dollars to the economy, will increase the income of American Citizens by 88 billion dollars, and will add twenty thousand five hundred thirty eight jobs? This specific data is much better than the generalized data that has been provided by the 26 Republican Governors who want to block the executive action. This has been achieved temporarily, but they want it permanently blocked. The only thing that these Governors have given is data like, “the economy is going to suffer millions of dollars” rather than precise and concrete data. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank You
- Executive Action 7/1/2015
Legal experts say that the situation for Executive Action in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals is difficult. This is because they have been appointed to the panel of three judges. The name of the appeals judges are Edward and Smith. They blocked the Executive Action before. Because the third judge surnamed Kim, was appointed by a Democratic president, this could make a difference. But the truth is that victory is anticipated at the Supreme Court of the United States. The big question is, how long will take the Supreme Court to make a decision? Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank You
- Executive Action’s Benefits 6/29/2015
Many people think that the only benefit of executive action by President Obama will be the work permit. This permission will benefit about 5 million undocumented immigrants who are parents of US citizens or residents. But the work permit is not the only benefit. Because they are going to accelerate the process of family petitions; in order to, no have to wait that long, because there are people waiting over 20 years for his residence. It also will allow the wives, spouses and minor children of US Residents do forgiveness within the country. This action would benefit millions of people. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thanks
- The Supreme Court 6/18/2015
The Supreme Court took an important decision for immigrants who have a deportation order. In many cases they will allow them to reopen their removal proceedings to have a new opportunity and fight their cases. Just they decide the case of a Mexican called Reyes Mata. In this case the customer’s previous attorney did not reopen the case within 90 days. The client sought the help of another attorney but it was too late. The Lower Court said he could not reopen the case but the Supreme Court corrected all other lower courts saying that yes, they had to give him another chance. This is an important precedent that can be applied to many people. Please leave a comment and tell us what you think about this. Thank you.
