Immigration Lawyer in Orlando Sees Rights Violations in New Policy

Orlando Immigration Lawyer Martinez Manglardi PA says new and aggressive anti-immigration measures run counter to America's tradition of due process. The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution states that no state shall "deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws". In other words, the law guarantees certain rights to every person in this country - citizen or no. Through its anti-immigration (and anti-immigrant) policies, the Trump administration is violating the letter and the spirit of the law. The administration's latest rule change...

Immigration Lawyers: ICE Arresting Immigrants With No Criminal Records

Immigration Lawyers at Martinez Manglardi PA in Orlando note that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is arresting large numbers of immigrants who have no criminal record. The Orlando immigration attorney cites a report in The Tampa Bay Times. The Times analyzed two years worth of records since the Trump administration began its crackdown on illegal immigration.

Orlando Immigration Attorney: Lawyer Can Protect Your Rights

Orlando Immigration Attorney Martinez Manglardi PA says courts can sometimes violate the rights of immigrants in judicial proceedings. According to a recent NBC News story, immigration lawyers "feel asylum seekers face an uphill and often insurmountable battle." With the Trump administration making life difficult in general for aspiring citizens, undocumented immigrants face hurdles. In fact, it appears that the administration wants to do away with due-process altogether. The New York Times reports that Trump, if he had his way, would send undocumented immigrants home immediately "with no judges or court cases." For the time being, however, America is still a country of laws,...

Orlando Immigration Lawyers on Denaturalization of Floridian

Orlando Immigration Lawyers Martinez Manglardi PA say that the government's recent move to strip a naturalized American of his citizenship is another worrisome sign for immigrants. The trial in the denaturalization proceedings against a 62-year-old Florida truck driver is underway in Jacksonville. Under the law, the government can revoke an immigrant's citizenship if they determine that a person obtained citizenship by lying or concealing information. Parvez Manzoor Khan of Branford, Florida has been a US citizen since 2006 without violating any laws since his arrival in America in 1991. The problem is that he arrived at Los Angeles Internation Airport from...

Immigration Attorney in Orlando Says Real Crisis is Court Backlog

 Orlando immigration attorney Frank Symphorien-Saavedra says the real immigration crisis stems not from caravans at the border, but deliberate policy changes designed to bring the legal process to a virtual standstill. "The administration's stance on immigration can make the path to legal status very complicated," Symphorien-Saavedra said. "In this difficult atmosphere, it's crucial to obtain expert legal advice." More than 800,000 non-citizens in America are waiting for their cases to be heard in US immigration courts. Most of these cases involve people who either entered the country illegally, overstayed their visas or are seeking asylum. While there has been an immigration court backlog...

Orlando Immigration Lawyer on H-1B Visa Changes

Orlando immigration lawyer Frank Symphorien-Saavedra says that despite being subject to legal challenges, changes to the H-1B Visa process are set to take effect on April 1st. The Trump administration issued an executive order last year that changed the procedure by which highly-skilled foreign professionals are granted work visas. H-1B Visas are in high demand among information technology companies which claim that there aren't enough qualified American workers. The program is popular with workers, many from India, who have specialized computer programming and engineering skills. The United States grants only 85,000 such visas a year, reserving 20,000 of these for workers with advanced degrees....
