Avalanche of Immigrants Crossing the Border ahead of the Presidential Inauguration
The Texas border has its facilities saturated with the wave of immigrants from Central America, especially children, crossing into the U.S. So far this year the numbers are alarmingly high, possibly exceeding the figures for 2014 when more than 68,000 unaccompanied minors were detained.
According to federal sources, the fear of new migratory policies under the Trump administration and the increase of violence in Central America are attributed as the major causes. Since the month of October the number of Central American immigrants detained at the border has increased, but this is only in part a result of the potential actions of Trump; violence in the Central American countries has not decreased but rather continues to rise and this is the main reason that moves these masses of people to risk their lives In search of a safe haven and opportunities.
Now, more than ever, speaking with an experienced and skilled immigration attorney is the first step when dealing with any immigration issue, an attorney who is authorized to practice immigration law in Dallas, throughout Texas and in all fifty states.
