Raids may have parties wanting more info on U.S. immigration law

In California and other areas of the country, immigration is a touchy subject for many reasons. Often, individuals enter the country in hopes of finding a better life and new opportunities, but many people wonder whether those opportunities should be available to parties who did not enter the country through legal means. U.S. immigration law changes and enforcements are having a considerable impact across the country, especially under the current presidential administration.

It was recently reported that a raid conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement at a meat processing plant in another state led to nearly 100 people being taken into custody. Of those individuals, 86 were held due to allegedly remaining in the country illegally. The report also stated that this event was the largest immigration enforcement act conducted on a single work site in approximately a decade.

Some immigrant advocates feel that this type of action targets workers and results in indiscriminate arrests. The raid of the facility was conducted after a search warrant was allegedly obtained, which resulted in federal agents reportedly discovering 97 people who could face removal from the United States. Of those parties, 10 also face federal criminal charges. It was noted that 54 were kept in ICE detention while 32 were released from custody.

This type of event, no matter where it takes place, can put numerous people on edge. Even individuals with permanent resident status may fear that they could possibly face removal from the country. If individuals in California have concerns regarding their immigration status, aspects of U.S. immigration law or other similar areas, they may wish to obtain reliable legal information that could help them better understand their particular situations.
