Supreme Court issues ruling regarding crimes and deportation

Many people immigrate to the United States with the best of intentions. However, sometimes an immigrant in Kentucky or elsewhere will have committed a crime and hence will face deportation. However, not every crime committed automatically means mandatory deportation. Unfortunately, the laws surrounding the commission of crimes and deportation can be vague.

Avoid immigration fraud-related problems in Kentucky

Emigrating from another country to Kentucky is challenging for many people. Whether an employer as offered you a job in this state or you plan to build a new life by marrying a U.S. citizen, you'll need to have all your paperwork in order to navigate this complex process that may take weeks, months or even years.  

Even a minor conviction could mean life or death for an immigrant

"During the Obama administration they weren't deporting anyone who wasn't a violent criminal," says Louisville immigration attorney Dennis Clare. "Now, any crime...could be a matter of life or death. They could be deported."

How does naturalization affect family immigration?

Sometimes people in Kentucky who are in the United States as a lawful permanent resident petition for their spouse or child to obtain an immigrant visa. However, the visa application process can take a long time. There are occasions in which a lawful permanent resident sponsoring a family member for a visa becomes a U.S. citizen before the visa application process is complete. They may wonder how their new status as a U.S. citizen affects the visa application process.

2020 census may include U.S. citizenship question

U.S. citizenship is sought after by many immigrants in Kentucky and across the nation. However, the naturalization process can be a lengthy one, meaning that those with Green Cards will reside lawfully in our nation as U.S. permanent residents, but will not be considered U.S. citizens until naturalization is achieved. Still, it is important to have a clear picture of how many people reside in each state and whether they are U.S. citizens. Therefore every 10 years, the United States government conducts a census.
