A look at the opposition between civil rights and immigration

| Oct 24, 2019 | Immigration Law |

While many are questioning how the process of immigration could be made more doable and efficient for families in California, there appear to be numerous hurdles that must first be overcome in finding a viable solution. With a growing number of families who are affected by policies that are keeping them separated from each other, many are seeking a solution that offers immediate relief. 

In a recent report released by the U.S. Government, officials criticized the Trump Administration’s approach to immigration policies saying that they are openly violating the civil rights of people seeking to have a better life in the United States. Citing some of the reasons why they believe such policies to be in violation of the rights of immigrants, certain officials believe it is critical that an alternative solution is implemented to provide more compassion and tolerance. 

Officials against the current policies stated that the lifelong trauma that immigrants are experiencing at border detention facilities, coupled with the tragic separation of families is creating heartache that is causing unimaginable pain to both adults and children. Some believe that the negative effects may be irreversible, especially to young victims who lack the resources to learn how to cope with severe trauma. 

If people are trying to work toward naturalization in the United States and are unable to get past certain steps, an attorney may be able to help. Legal professionals have the experience to help immigrants identify solutions that can potentially expedite their effort to become a U.S. citizen.
