As we are all very aware, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, has been conducting raids in an effort to track down undocumented immigrants. Just recently in Chigaco, a bakery that supplies hamburger buns for McDonald’s was subject to an immigration raid that resulted in the loss of 800 employees, which is over a third of the bakery’s workforce. Of course, this is only one of several efforts by ICE to detain undocumented immigrants.
Many of these raids result in deportation. Of course, the family members of those who have been detained and may be deported are very worried about the future of their relative. If so, it is important that loved ones of individuals facing deportation consult with an experienced immigration attorney. An immigration attorney may help clients locate family members who have been detained, determine whether the detained family member will be transferred to other states, determine if the individual is eligible for bail or conditional release, help establish communication between the detained person and their family, and provide the detainee with legal representation during deportation proceedings. As times change and immigration laws become stricter, it is important to retain the services of an experienced immigration attorney and see how you can obtain a legal status or help a loved one from being deported.
