Southern Border Chaos: Title 42 Set to End

Title 42

  Democrats and Republicans both warn of another surge of migrants on May 23, when Title 42 is set to end.  Title 42 is a Trump-era policy which was used to designate hundreds of thousands of migrants for “expulsion,” claiming that allowing these migrants to enter would increase the spread of COVID-19 in the U.S. It has been reported that hundreds of migrants have formed caravans heading to the U.S./Mexico border. The U.S. government is preparing to process the new arrivals by deploying more than 600 law enforcement officers to the border, along with personnel and resources required to handle the expected surge...

Special Immigrant Juvenile Status

Special Immigrant Juvenile Status

Upon the granting of a State Order for Custody or Guardianship, the child will be eligible to file for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status.  Once this status is granted the child is eligible for a green card as soon as a visa becomes available...

Credible Fear Interview Preparation

Credible Fear

Know someone who is Detained and Interested in Seeking Asylum? When people are detained by the United States government, they must receive a positive credible fear determination from their Credible Fear Interview to be able to pursue claims to asylum or withholding of removal.
