Supreme Court punts on DACA ruling

Protections offered as part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program were scheduled to be phased out starting in March. This could have implications for 700,000 young adults living in Colorado and elsewhere who are covered by DACA. However, on Feb. 26, the Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal of an injunction issued on Jan. 9 by a federal judge in San Francisco.

Is your Temporary Protected Status scheduled to end?

Could cancellation of removal stop possible deportation?

After coming to the United States, many individuals may have thought that they left the worst of their worries behind and that they had the opportunity to start a new phase of life.

What happens after the revocation of temporary protected status?

Are you eligible for a self-petitioned green card?

Navigating the visa process for permission to live and work in the United States can be extremely complicated and stressful. Perhaps you initially entered Colorado or another state with the assistance of a spouse or other family member who petitioned on your behalf. Someone you know (or perhaps yourself) may have been mistreated by someone they thought they could trust and relied on to help them seek an adjustment of status.

Immigrant parent of sick child aims to avoid deportation

Colorado residents may have heard that the father of a 5-year-old child who is battling cancer was recently ordered deported as part of an effort to crackdown on undocumented immigrants in the United States. However, he is currently staying at Shadow Rock United Church of Christ in Phoenix and plans to stay there for as long as it takes to resolve his case. The man had been deported once before in 2006, and he was apprehended again by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in 2016.

The impact of money on naturalization rates

Colorado naturalized citizens may have rights that permanent residents and other non-citizen immigrants do not. For instance, they are allowed to vote, may have greater access to jobs and may be able to sponsor family members looking to live in the country as well. However, despite these benefits, the naturalization rate in the United States has been falling in recent years. One reason may be the cost of going through the naturalization process.
