Former immigration officer struggling with U.S. immigration law

Undocumented immigrants who were brought to Louisiana as children have to deal with many different barriers throughout their lives. There are not many options under U.S. immigration law for these people, even though many do not remember ever living anywhere else. The situation can be even more complicated for people who do not find out they are undocumented until adulthood.

Proposed US immigration law would help agricultural workers

Growing enough food to feed everyone in America is a challenge. Farmers have to plant the right amount of crops, water them correctly and protect their hard work from pests. These are very physical tasks, and the people who help grow and harvest food have to work very hard each and every day. The farming industry in Louisiana and across the rest of America rely on undocumented immigrants to take on these jobs. A proposed change to U.S. immigration law could give undocumented farm workers a better opportunity to gain legal status.

US immigration law: Will new initiative include asylum seekers?

The federal government is reportedly planning to launch a new initiative that may affect Louisiana residents who have immigrant family members. U.S. immigration law is complex and often changes, so it is difficult to stay updated on new laws, policies and initiatives, even if one is well-versed in immigration issues. The new regulation would require people who are detained after entering the United States between official points of entry to submit DNA samples. It is meant to apply to anyone who enters the country without proper immigration documentation.

African immigrants doing well despite US immigration law barriers

The news is doing a pretty good job of painting a grim picture when it comes to immigration. Some people in Louisiana might think that everyone hoping to come to the United States is facing unimaginable barriers. Even though U.S. immigration law can be complicated, this is not true. For example, immigrants from Africa are now the fastest growing population of immigrants.

Change to US immigration law requires health care coverage

The cost of health care in the United States can be quite steep. Even with insurance, many patients struggle to pay both monthly premiums and medical bills from seeing the doctor. Still, most people can receive excellent care across the country. A recent change to U.S. immigration law could make some of that care inaccessible by barring certain individuals from obtaining visas or even entering the country.

Possible asylum decisions in US immigration law

Applying for asylum can be a matter of life or death. That's why a person may feel very worried when waiting for a decision. However, decisions can be a lot more complicated than just a "yes" or "no." According to U.S. immigration law, a person living in Louisiana could receive a number of different decisions. Here are just some of the possible results.

Helpful tips for dealing with US immigration law

It would be nice if the immigration process were quicker and less confusing, but it is often a long journey with many different kinds of obstacles. Because of this, navigating U.S. immigration law is a lot harder than it may seem at first. Some of the following tips may be helpful for Louisiana immigrants who are struggling with the process.

Lawmakers walk back US immigration law medical policy change

Immigrants in Louisiana probably feel like this is an extremely uncertain period of time. U.S. immigration law is rapidly changing, and new policies that affect specific programs can be very confusing. What might be even more confusing is when policy changes are suddenly reversed, and those affected by these ongoing changes and reversals are not sure of where they stand.

Another US immigration law change affects medical deferrals

Foreign nationals who need specialized medical care sometimes seek treatment in the United States, but these individuals sometimes receive orders for removal or need care beyond the time limits of their visas. According to U.S. immigration law, immigrants living in Louisiana and elsewhere who have serious medical conditions can apply for deferrals. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service -- USCIS -- used to be the agency that considered the deferrals. Now, Immigration and Customs Enforcement will be in charge of making those decisions.

US immigration law allows for appeals

The average person may spend months or even years looking forward to the end of his or her immigration case. Unfortunately, it is not always a satisfactory end, and a person may receive a decision that is not favorable. Under U.S. immigration law, a person may have a right to appeal that decision.
