Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
Young people who came to the U.S. before 16 years of age can apply today to avoid deportation, request a work permit, social security and license. On August 15,2012, the Immigration Service published the new form to request Deferred Action for Youth. Form I-821 D, which can be filed now. The application is a bit complicated because it must include all schools that the student has gone, all addresses where he has lived since coming to America, starting with the address where you live now, the date of entry into the country, rather input, explain whether the U.S. has ever gone, his identity number if any, plus your name and date of birth.
The possibility of deportation causes much stress, worry and fear that you will lose all you’ve worked so hard to accomplish. If you are faced with deportation, we will fight to keep you in the United States and defend you every step of the way.
Detention by Immigration Authorities
For people in prison by ICE or Homeland Security or the Immigration Service, we will request a BOND HEARING to obtain a release from jail. If a relative of yours has been detained by immigration authorities, it is possible that they may be transferred to a facility out of the state. If the individual is represented by an attorney, it may prevent this transfer. Representation while in custody is very important. We suggest that detainees NOT TALK NOR ADMIT ANYTHING NOR SIGN ANYTHING while in jail, unless represented by an attorney. While in jail, one may be pressured into admitting that you are an illegal alien and one may agree to a voluntary deportation thinking that it is your only option; when there may be defenses available to you ( For example, if you have children in the US or are married and have ties to this country )
