Supreme Court to take up immigration detention case

Florida residents may be aware that some of President Donald Trump's more aggressive immigration policies have been challenged in the courts. Trump's administration has been embroiled in a long-running dispute with areas known as sanctuary cities where undocumented immigrants are offered protection and the authorities do not fully comply with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. The detention of undocumented workers has been a particularly contentious matter, and the U.S. Supreme Court announced on March 19 that it would hear an appeal from the Trump administration in a case dealing with this issue.

Immigration and employment tax compliance matter to your business

Running a business means making a lot of decisions, working long hours and being responsible for the well-being of your company and everyone who works there. When mistakes or oversights happen, you may find yourself financially or legally accountable. Your company doesn't need to tie up thousands of dollars to defend a hiring decision or work its way through a difficult audit of financial records.

Changes expected for existing immigration programs

Some residents in Florida began their journey to the United States as immigrants. Existing federal programs that manage immigration have long placed importance on reuniting families and allowing employers to sponsor the entry of workers. The Trump administration seeks to alter or eliminate some programs and base admission to the country on education and employment qualifications.

Non-criminal deportations on the rise

In Florida and other states that are home to large immigrant communities, many families live in fear that Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents will knock on their doors. This fear is a reflection of how the Trump administration has changed the rules to arrest more immigrants.

Having counsel makes huge difference for asylum seekers

Florida families may be affected by an ongoing controversy related to a key element in the process for seeking asylum in the United States. Undocumented immigrants who are physically present in the United States may seek asylum, which is a type of legal permission to stay, if they can show a credible fear of persecution in their home country.
