Judge blocks Trump executive order on asylum

Many people in Florida are closely following the legal developments related to U.S. immigration law and the Trump administration's programs. This is especially true for those who have their own involvement with the immigration system and could be potentially impacted by the administration's policies. On Nov. 19, a federal judge barred the administration's attempt to refuse asylum to immigrants who crossed the southern border without documents.

Trump administration announces policy to restrict asylum rights

On Nov. 8, the Trump administration announced that immigrants who illegally enter Florida or other parts of the U.S. will forfeit their right to claim asylum. Once enacted, the strict new policy will only apply to new asylum seekers, not those who have entered the country in the past.

For undocumented victims of crimes, U visas can offer protection

Those who come into the United States without proper documentation often live in fear that they will soon wind up caught by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents and be deported. That fear can result in undocumented immigrants in the United States failing to stand up for their own rights.

Trump administration seeks to challenge asylum law

Many people who are living in Florida, especially those with immigrant loved ones, are concerned about how Trump administration policies on immigration could affect their lives. One topic of concern is the administration's statement on the right to seek asylum, widely publicized as a migrant caravan travels from Central America through Mexico to the U.S. border. Reports have indicated that Trump wants to shut down the asylum process, long part of U.S. and international law, along the country's southern border. Of course, any attempt to eliminate asylum rights would be challenged in federal court as an unconstitutional use of executive power, but a legal battle may drag on for years.

Is there risk to birthright citizenship from an executive order?

Federal policies on immigration can shift rapidly, leaving those hoping to seek citizenship in the United States vulnerable to new policies, paperwork and approaches. Whenever any major change is in progress for immigration laws in the U.S., those hoping to immigrate often have to make decisions about whether to apply prior to the changes or adjust their hopes to the new requirements.

Leaked Trump comments spark immigration debate

Immigration has become a hot-button issue as voters in Florida and around the country prepare to cast their ballots in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections, and President Trump added fuel to an already incendiary debate on Oct. 30 when comments he made in an upcoming interview were leaked to the press. In the interview, Trump suggested using an executive order to end birthright citizenship in the United States. The interview is scheduled to be shown on HBO just days before the crucial vote.
