Can birthright citizenship be revoked?

With the crackdown on immigration sweeping the country, it is understandable that many immigrants and their families may worry about their abilities to stay in California and other parts of the country. These worries can cause a great deal of stress and uncertainty in many people's lives. Even individuals who once thought they were safe due to their citizenship status could have concerns due to talks of immigration law changes.

Separated families may have their asylum cases reviewed

Immigration issues can span far and wide. A family from another country may try to come to United States in hopes of pursuing a better life, but in the end, they may face more turmoil than expected. The separation of children from parents along the border remains a serious issue, but some asylum cases for these individuals may be reviewed.

US immigration law may allow deported parents' kids to be adopted

No one in California or elsewhere wants to lose a child under any circumstances. However, many immigrants who came into the country through illegal means found themselves separated from their children at the border. A number of those parents were even deported from the country while their children were kept in the United States. Now, U.S. immigration law may allow those children to be put up for adoption.

US immigration law: Waivers may help some looking to obtain visas

Some people may come to California or other parts of the United States without following the proper immigration steps. Still, they may build lives here and even find love that results in their marrying U.S. citizens. While marrying a citizen can impact a person's immigration status, a waiver may be needed under U.S. immigration law if the person has an unlawful presence in the country and hopes to obtain a visa.

Judge stops deportations for some immigrants

Immigration reform is a complex issue that has escalated across the country over the past few months. On Oct. 3, 2018, a judge in San Francisco ruled that a new policy would cause "irreparable harm and great hardship" to the immigrants it affects. What would this new policy change and how might it affect immigrants in the area?

Potential caregivers detained for US immigration law violations

The fact that children of individuals looking to enter the United States have been separated from their parents and detained is not particularly new information. Many parents and other family members have struggled with this situation, and numerous children have been left without their loved ones. Though individuals can come forward to provide care for these undocumented children, officials are now reportedly using that opportunity to detain individuals in violation of U.S. immigration law.
