How Will a Border Wall Help?

Border Wall

The number of undocumented people living in the United States has continued to decline from 2016-2017. According to a study from the Center for Migration Studies, this marks the seventh consecutive year that visa overstays outnumbered illegal border wall crossings. Most people obtain a visa from an overseas U.S. consulate. A visa is an official endorsement which certifies that the visa applicant has been examined and is permitted to seek admission to the United States at a designated port of entry.

For example, a passenger who was injured in a single vehicle crash that was caused by the driver's negligence, such as speeding and losing control of the car, has the right to sue the driver for damages such as medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The driver...

Why You Should Never Settle With the Insurance Adjuster

Insurance Adjuster in Mississippi

Personal Injury cases in Mississippi are settled everyday with no lawyer involvement between an injured party and their assigned insurance adjuster. We see people quickly signing the insurance adjuster’s paperwork every day instead of getting free legal advice first before accepting a quick offer.   Some clients may be thinking that an Injury lawyer will take most of the money, or probably can’t get more for you after fees. Some clients don’t want to have to go to court, or have anxiety and are too nervous, or just don’t have time to be messing with Injury lawyers and the court system. Some...

ICE Can Fix This Issue Today

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) is a sub-agency under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). ICE recently announced it is detaining 52,000 immigrants in jails and prisons around the United States. Congress has only appropriated funding to manage a daily average of around 45,000 beds until the end of September 2019. This discrepancy in the number of people in detention and the money allocated to appropriately detain them resulted in DHS taking funds away from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the U.S. Coast Guard, among other agencies, and reallocating the funds to ICE’s detention efforts. ICE can...
