Immigration Reform to include Merit-Based Visas and Border Wall

A document sent recently to Congress by President Trump with his vision of immigration reform includes extending the wall along the Mexican border and a merit-based system of granting visas.  Visa applicants will face increased fees.

Provisions will also be added to expedite the repatriation of unaccompanied minors from Central America who enter the country without authorization, and the hiring of an additional 10,000 immigration agents and 300 new federal prosecutors.

The document suggests limiting the number of Green Cards issued to spouses and minor children of legal residents in favor of establishing a points system for people seeking permanent residence in the US.

This latest proposal sent to Congress does not make any mention for a solution of the approximate 800,000 undocumented young people who entered the country and were protected by the DACA program, which Trump has planned to end as soon as possible.

When you consult with an immigration attorney it is important that you are able to speak with an actual attorney. No one besides an attorney is able to give you legal advice, even an attorney’s assistant cannot give you legal advice, you must speak with an actual licensed attorney.

You must also be able to understand the attorney. The attorney must either speak a language you understand or have a competent interpreter that will allow you to understand what the attorney is saying.

If you cannot communicate with the attorney they will not be able to provide you safe advice. Never hire an attorney that you have not spoken with.

Speaking with an experienced and skilled immigration attorney is the first step when dealing with any immigration issue. An experienced attorney authorized to practice immigration law in Dallas, throughout Texas, and in all fifty states can assure that your case moves forward as quickly as possible and is handled correctly.
