Private prison use may decline in California

When immigrants have faced detention in California and elsewhere in the United States, they may have expected to spend time in one of the nation’s private, for-profit prisons. However, the International Business Times explains that the U.S. Department of Justice plans to stop contracting with these private facilities, although some states may still decide to use them to ease the overcrowding of those who have been incarcerated.

New ruling against government detention policy

Regardless of immigration status, people in the United States must be provided with due process of law. So, whether a resident is a U.S. citizen or a green card holder, or if that person is an immigrant with or without proper documentation, he or she should not be denied a chance to have a fair trial through the court system.

Data gathered about the Priority Enforcement Program

As an immigrant in Orange County and Riverside County areas of California, the topic of detainment and deportation may be one that draws your interest for personal reasons. If you are in the country without the proper documentation, you may even be concerned about whether you could be the target of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. We at the U.S. Law Center understand the laws and policies that may offer some protection to people under threat of apprehension, detainment and deportation.

Am I eligible to get a green card through military service?

If your ambition is to move to California and become a permanent resident of the United States, one of your first steps may be identifying what paths are open to you for meeting the legal requirements. According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, some foreign nationals have become qualified to apply for a green card by serving in one of the branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. But, choosing this method requires a strong commitment to this country and a willingness to invest years of time into meeting your goal.
