Arrested while applying for a green card: US immigration experts fear policy shift!

Greg Krasovsky: If you or someone you know have issues with your U.S. immigration status -- e.g. you overstayed your visa, or have abandoned your v permanent resident status by staying out of the U.S. for more than a year -- then please do NOT risk dealing with U.S. immigration authorities (USCIS, ICE, CBP and U.S. Department of State) on your own without an immigration attorney, as you could be detained (arrested), deported or barred from entering the United States!
 
Please consider retaining legal counsel from a competent and experienced U.S. immigration attorney who can advise you on your current legal situation, risks and available remedies.

Arrested while applying for a green card: US immigration experts fear policy shift!

"Multiple cases of people being arrested while seeking green cards marks a dramatic shift in immigration policy, say observers: ‘This is what we all feared’

Leandro Arriaga arrived at the immigration office with his US citizen wife and three-month-old daughter on Wednesday.


Their lawyer knew the meeting was a risk. Arriago, 43, who had come to the US from the Dominican Republic in 2000, did have an order of deportation out against him. But she had never had a client detained at a US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) meeting before.


The arrest of Arriago and at least three other people in Massachusetts this week while they were applying for their green cards marks a dramatic shift in immigration policy, say attorneys and experts.

A total of five individuals were arrested in total according to a statement from Immigration Customs Enforcement (Ice), which was responding to “an investigative tip”.

Susan Church, the head of the New England chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, says that at least three of those people were in the process of applying for green cards and did not have criminal records."
