Deportation Proceedings Explained By: Donald Lindover, Esq., Counsel to NPZ Law Group, P.C.


What are my rights if I am facing removal?

It is estimated that between 11 and 20 million undocumented immigrants currently reside in the United States.

IN FOCUS: RIGHTS OF UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS

GREEN CARD HOLDERS NEED TO UNDERSTAND THEIR RIGHTS AT PORTS OF ENTRY


Upon return to the United States from travel abroad, Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) or Green Card holders have certain due process rights, including the right to a hearing before an immigration judge before they can be stripped of their permanent resident status.

EB-5 Visa Program Comes Under Fire


What changes could be made to the EB-5 visa program in the near future?

The EB-5 visa program, also referred to as the Immigrant Visa program, was created back in 1990 in an effort to encourage foreign investors and create employment opportunities for both citizens and immigrants alike.  Under the program, foreign investors can receive a green card for themselves and their families if they invest at least $1 million, or $500,000 for projects within targeted employment zones, and create at least 10 full time jobs within the U.S.

ICE Detains Immigrant Father While Dropping Daughter Off at School


How can I protect myself in the event of an ICE raid?

An immigrant father had just dropped off his 12-year-old daughter at her school in Los Angeles when two unmarked vehicles surrounded his car. With his wife and another child in the car, the family pulled away from the school.  Suddenly, the vehicles’ lights flashed and the car was forced to pull over.  Agents for the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detained the 48-year-old father of four.  The 13-year-old child in the car recorded the detention and can be heard sobbing in the publicized video.

ABCs OF H-1Bs (THIS IS PART VI OF AN VIII PART SERIES): THE H-1B WAS CAP REACHED; DO I STILL HAVE A CHANCE OF GETTING AN H-1B VISA?


In the first week of April during the last several years the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) announced that it has received a sufficient number of H-1B petitions to reach the statutory cap, both regular and master’s. Because of the surge of petitions filed, USCIS conducts a lottery (technically referred as “random selection process”), to determine which petitions received in the five-day submission period, the minimum time USCIS can accept petitions, will actually be considered. USCIS then begins sending receipt notices for the petitions selected in the random selection process.

ABCs OF H-1Bs (THIS IS PART V OF AN VIII PART SERIES): DOES MY MASTER’S DEGREE QUALIFY ME FOR THE H-1B MASTER’S CAP?


Many F-1 visa holders, particularly those who are engaged in OPT change their immigration status to become professional and specialty workers (H-1B workers). The H-1B cap is the Congressionally-mandated limit on the number of individuals who may be granted H-1B status during each fiscal year.
