Helping Those Who Cannot Help Themselves!

Justice was served today at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (“ICE”) office in Atlanta, Georgia.  Our clients, a mother and her minor child, were facing imminent deportation to their native country, Guatemala.  Their deportation had been scheduled for Monday at 7:00 am, but thanks to our amazing immigration attorneys, Mario Guevara from Mundo Hispanico, and the General Counsel of Guatemala in Atlanta, Georgia, our client will stay in the country and have an opportunity to present her case before an immigration judge.

Our client and her child came to the U.S. in 2014, after fleeing her native country and fearing for her life.  She hired a local attorney, who did nothing but take her money.  He failed to request a credible fear interview, failed to submit an asylum application, and failed to inform ICE officers of our client’s fear to return to her native country.  This placed our client in a big predicament that almost got her sent back to the situation she is trying to escape.  Fortunately, after hearing about our client's case from Mario Guevara and the Guatemalan consulate, we decided to take our client's case to try to stop her imminent deportation.  Our amazing team worked diligently throughout the night to find a solution to her case.  Today, after several hours of advocacy, we were able stop the deportation and our client and her child will now have an opportunity to see an Immigration Judge, who can better weight the merits of her case.

If you would like to see what we did and the result of this case, watch this video first.

The DOJ Raised The Penalty Fee for Immigration Law Violations--Including Employer Sanctions

The Department of Justice announced an increase in fines for violations of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as the pertain to those sections that account for fraud, document abuse, and unfair immigration-related employment practices. While this is only an adjustment for inflation, it brings home the point that that poorly or incorrectly completing immigration forms, like the Form I-9, can lead to very costly fines from ICE and the Immigration Court.
