Migrants hopeful to cross border, could face detention

For many immigrants, the thought of making a new home in America, building a better life and finding protection for their families are some of the common goals they share. However, getting into the United States and acquiring legal citizenship requires time, attention and commitment. Immigrants who try to get into Illinois without following the designated legal process could face a variety of consequences including detention, deportation and fines.

For the naturalized citizens or legal permanent residents living in Chicago, their ultimate goal may be to have the remainder of their families join them in the U.S. Immigrating can be a complex legal process, yet the good news for those who already have family living in America is that they have a built-in advantage when it comes to gaining legal admission.

These are uncertain times for immigrants in Chicago and across the country. Many of them are looking to start new lives and benefit from living in the land of opportunity. However, for them to remain in the country, they must not be here illegally. Recent changes to immigration laws under President Trump’s presidency is making the path to sponsorship and citizenship more challenging for some immigrants.
