In recent news, according to Immigration Impact, individuals now have the right to request for their immigration files no matter the circumstance. “The blame shifting must end. Immigrants have been the victim of an information imbalance for far too long. The agencies hold the A-Files—and the power to significantly impact people’s lives.” It is important for many to have access to their records because it could save them from deportation or help with applying for immigration benefits.
Immigration has far too long used the backlog excuse and now need to take into consideration that many need to have their records at hand. A system needs to be figured out in order to provide immigrants with what is needed.
