When people are preparing to petition for immigration in the United States, their commitment to paying attention to the details and following the steps in sequence may allow them to accomplish their objective more efficiently. On occasion, immigrant families in Illinois may want to file a petition on behalf of relatives who do not live in the United States. While it is allowed, families should be thorough in following the process to give their family member the best shot at being approved.
Many people in Illinois and across the nation have been watching the shifting tide and actions regarding immigrants and how they are treated in the U.S. since the last presidential election. Despite being a nation all but built on immigration, there can be a sense that today's administration is working against immigrants. A recently announced plan concerning public housing options for immigrants raises that feeling again.
According to Reuters, the Trump administration is looking into expanding current laws that allow for the deportation of immigrants who utilize public benefits. While this law has been in place for some time, it's rarely used unless an immigrant has a pre-existing issue for which they require help but failed to disclose it upon entry into the country or they fail to repay benefits when requested.
