Banning Immigration Services

Nothing is simple about immigration law.

If you’re here without permission, you know how hard life is without legal immigration documents.

Perhaps you have already naturalized. You’re a U.S. citizen.  You want to help your family members.

For instance:

  • Maybe your son, who recently graduated from high school cannot cannot find a good-paying job because he is not a permanent resident.
  • Perhaps your wife entered the United States without permission and fears being picked up by ICE officers.
  • Or your cousin is locked up at an immigration detention center for a conviction from 15 years ago.

None of these situations have an easy solution.

Still, you may be able to help relatives with these or other immigration problems.

In many, if not all, of these types of cases, you will need to select the right lawyer to help you.

It’s our goal to be that person for you and your family.

For over 20 years, the Riverside Immigration Law Offices of Harvard-educated Carlos Batara has assisted families win the right to live and work legally in the United States.

Now, we’d like to help you and your family.

My Spouse And I Separated Before My Two-Year Residency Expired. I Entered On A Fiancée Visa. Do I Have To Return Home?

“My husband helped bring me to the United States through a fiancée visa. We got married. I got a green card for two years. They told us to go back for a new interview in two years. But after living together, we found out things about each other we did not like. He filed for a divorce. I moved with my aunt who lives in Fontana. What can I do? Do I have to go back home?”

Do Miranda Warnings Apply To Deportation Cases?

It’s a question many immigrants ask.

“How much should I tell ICE officers if they arrest me?”

Most but not all immigrants are aware of their Miranda Rights. In short, police officers are required to tell individuals of their rights to remain silent and to obtain an attorney, before they can question the suspect about a potential crime. There is too much risk that a person who is not free to leave would confess due to the officers’ coercion or intimidation.

However, over the years, it has become more and more unclear when Miranda Rights apply.

As a result, the need to extend these rights for immigrants who may face deportation was recently brought before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in two separate cases.

Following the passage of IIRAIRA in 1996, which transformed many convictions into automatic deportations, criminal law and immigration law have merged to create a new field of law. Termed crimmigration law, immigration lawyers and attorneys have sought ways to counter this intrusion on the due process rights of immigrants.

Two cases hold huge implications for immigrant defendants.

The issue is straight-forward: when should immigration agents instruct immigrants, under arrest and facing removal, that their statements may be used against them in immigration court and that they are entitled to an attorney at their own expense.

Keeping on eye out for these decisions is crucial for many lawful permanent residents and green card holders, including some who wind up fighting deportation charges for an offense committed 20 years ago.

For the present, we encourage all individuals, especially immigrants, to remain silent, request time to speak to an attorney, and ask to be sent to an immigration court.

An equally important step is to locate an immigration defense attorney as quickly as possible if you’re about to be placed in deportation proceedings.

It is ill-advised to go alone. Immigration law is simply too hard for most people to truly understand what should be done to offset the removal charges.
