Deported asylum seekers given second chance to make their case

We are fortunate to live in a country that is relatively safe. Not everyone in the world can claim this is so. Some people live in countries where they face persecution that puts their very lives in jeopardy. When this happens, these individuals may seek asylum in the United States. This issue has recently made the news in Kentucky and across the nation as some deported asylum seekers are being given a second chance to make their case.

House passes deportation bill defining 'violent crimes'

If an immigrant in Kentucky or elsewhere in the United States commits what constitutes a "crime of violence" under federal immigration law, that immigrant may be deported. The definition of what exactly falls under "crimes of violence" for the purposes of federal immigration law has been called into question lately, and the government is taking action to clarify what that phrase means.

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.

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.

Somalis in U.S. will keep protected status, will not face removal

Not every country is safe to live in. Natural disasters, such as earthquakes or man-made disasters, such as war, can threaten the lives of those living in these countries. Therefore, many people from countries, such as these, may choose to seek a safe haven in Kentucky and other states in our nation. One way some immigrants were able to lawfully reside in the U.S. was through a government program that was meant to help those seeking refuge from unsafe countries.

Supreme Court ruling could help those facing deportation

Sometimes, immigrants come to Kentucky and other states in the nation and reside there for many years, even if they do not have authorization to do so. These immigrants can be productive members of society, but they do face the threat of deportation. However, they still have rights when it comes to removal proceedings that must be protected.

Immigrant reservists could face discharge, possible removal

Many service members from Kentucky and nationwide bravely serve in the United States military to protect the country they now call home. However, this service does not always last until retirement. Sometimes, a person is discharged from the military before retirement. When a person is discharged from the military, there will usually be a reason given (good or bad). But, some members of the U.S. military are being discharged without explanation or an opportunity to defend themselves.

Could new USCIS policy lead to removal of international students?

Many students from abroad come to Kentucky to attend college or other institutes, such as graduate school, law school or medical school. These students general do so through a lawful visa. After graduating from college, graduate school or law school, a foreign student may want to seek work or continue their education. If they are able to do so with the proper visa, they can lawfully continue living here. But, per a new policy by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), this may become harder and could even lead to deportation and removal.

What is the process for deportation and removal?

Kentucky residents may have seen many stories in the news as of late regarding undocumented immigrants being detained and deported. These reports are certainly disturbing to those in our country who are undocumented or have loved ones that are. Therefore, it is important to understand how the deportation process works.

Kentucky colleges are leaders in admitting students from abroad

Many may say the current immigration system in the United States is dysfunctional with overburdened courts, an overly complicated application process and unreasonably long wait times. However, at least two colleges in Kentucky have taken steps to help many immigrant students lawfully stay in the country.
