Rule changes could affect residency status of some immigrants

Many people, citizens and non-citizens alike, need help from time to time. Some people in Kentucky or elsewhere in the United States are only able to find low-paying work, or they may have lost their job, putting them in a difficult financial state. Others are just starting out in our nation and may be actively looking for work to support themselves, but need some assistance in the meantime. These individuals may qualify for government benefits to help them through a tough time, until things pick up again. However, non-citizens and dependents of non-citizens should be aware that changes to federal rules regarding immigrants and government benefits are being reviewed that could affect them and their loved ones.

What rights and responsibilities come with U.S. citizenship?

Many immigrants in Kentucky and across the United States may dream of one day obtaining U.S. citizenship, a process also known as "naturalization." Becoming a U.S. citizen brings with it certain rights and responsibilities that those without citizenship do not enjoy. The following are just some of the rights and responsibilities that come with naturalization.

First Lady's parents become citizens through family immigration

When a U.S. citizen has loved ones in another country, they may wish to sponsor these loved ones for a green card and eventually naturalization. This way, family members can be reunited in the U.S. and can legally reside in the country. For this reason, family immigration is important to many in Kentucky and across the nation. And, even prominent citizens can benefit from family immigration.

Federal judge rules to reinstate DACA, preventing deportation

Many young undocumented immigrants were lawfully residing in the United States through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. However, the Trump administration has decided to end that program. This has made these young adults in Kentucky and elsewhere fear the very real possibility of deportation and removal.

Have you been ordered to appear at a Stokes interview?

When you married a U.S. citizen and relocated to Kentucky from your country of origin, you likely assumed you might encounter various challenges as you adapted to a new culture, new home, new language and more. You were hopeful that your spouse, extended family members and friends would provide a strong support system to help you overcome any obstacles that might arise. You knew it wouldn't be easy but you were sure it was worth it because you had met the love of your life and were happy. 

What are the steps in the deportation and removal process?

Many people from other countries flee their homelands for the U.S. in hopes of having a better life. However, non-citizens in Kentucky and other states may, for a variety of reasons, face the possibility of deportation and removal. Therefore, it is important that they are familiar with the deportation process, so they can understand their rights and know what to expect.
