South Fla Immigration Lawyers Advice Patience But Anxiety Persists Among Those Waiting For Papers
When it comes to fear of being deported, immigration attorney Mayra Joli, gives her clients a checklist: Do they have an order of removal? Have they committed any crimes? Are they working on their case?
“If your answers are two no’s and one yes, you have nothing to worry about,” Joli says. “Just go back to sleep. And let me sleep.”
But concerns have risen since the Trump administration released more plans to crack down on illegal immigration this week, in a move that includes adding thousands of enforcement agents and border patrol officers, as well as setting up more detention centers and immigration courts.
Joli says this can benefit law-abiding non-citizens.
“We are American, we want immigrants, but we need to have it in an orderly fashion,” Joli said. “If not, we’re never going to be able to see the purity of the immigrants who are coming to the U.S. to work.”
