US immigration law -- do ICE arrests violate the Constitution?

Immigrants in Louisiana may feel worried when interacting with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and understandably so. Every year, ICE arrests many immigrants -- both documented and undocumented. The way things are handled after these arrests might not be totally constitutional, though. A federal appellate court recently decided that ICE and U.S. immigration law should follow the same constitutional rules to which regular police must abide.

US immigration law and the immigration interview

Immigration interviews are a regular part of many immigration procedures in Louisiana. During an interview, a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officer will ask a number of different questions about someone's background, present circumstances and other relevant information. These interviews are a very important part of U.S. immigration law, but the idea of sitting down to answer a number of different personal questions can feel very overwhelming. Preparing for the process can help.

It's important to have help with family immigration concerns

United States immigration laws are complex, and they are constantly changing. It can be quite challenging to bring a loved one into the country and reunite a Louisiana family, even in a seemingly straightforward case. Family immigration can be a frustrating and lengthy process, which is why many find it helpful to work with an experienced attorney from the very first steps.

USCIS reverses furlough decision

In a sudden reversal, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that it no longer plans to furlough almost 70% of its employees. While this means immigrants in Louisiana can still expect regular wait times for their applications, it could come with a higher cost. The USCIS also says that it still expects to run out of money, although several lawmakers have demonstrated that this may not be the case.
