Government could shut down over U.S. immigration law reform

Immigration can often be considered a touchy subject for many California residents. Some individuals may believe that restrictions should be less strict, and others may think that even more stipulations must be placed on parties coming into the country. Because U.S. immigration law has been a hot topic as of late, many parties may be interested in a potential government shutdown in relation to immigration reform.

It was recently reported that, due to a lack of agreement on how to handle immigration reform, a government shutdown could be on the horizon. Democratic Congress members believe that individuals who were brought to the United States as children should still remain protected under certain immigration laws. However, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy was ended by President Trump.

Individuals who were once protected by DACA could face serious repercussions if other policies are not put in place to offer similar protections. Though Democrats in Congress hope to enact new policies, they have yet to take form. Due to the inability for Congress to come to terms on this reform, the shutdown could take place in efforts to see some progress on the issue.

Individuals who have come to the United States undoubtedly want to live the best lives possible. However, U.S. immigration law changes and uncertainties could put many parties in difficult positions. If people living in California have concerns regarding the reform, the repeal of DACA or other immigration law issues, they may wish to speak with knowledgeable attorneys about the potential impacts and their options for dealing with any pressing issues.
