The House of Representatives is assessing three more bills regarding immigration policies in the United States. It seems as though immigration policies are changing weekly in the country and our firm is dedicated to staying up to date on the legislation that may have impacts on our clients as they go through the immigration process.
The first of the three bills is the Davis-Oliver Act, which would allow states and local law enforcement to come up with their own rules and regulations as to how they will handle immigration. In addition, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) may have a greater ability to arrest or deport undocumented immigrants and increase the penalties for undocumented immigrants who commit crimes.
The second bill would simply state the role of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services. This piece of legislation would direct the organization more towards any threats to national security, working to prevent fraudulent acts happening to new immigrants, and controlling the number of work visas that are issued. Finally, there is a bill that would increase the number of removal and deportation officers working for ICE.
All of these highly contested bills are in early stages and still need to pass through both the House and the Senate. If you have questions about the quickly changing immigration policies in the United States or need the assistance of an experienced attorney, contact our firm today.
