If you have questions you can contact us at (916) 613-3553 so there have been a lot of ICE raids recently and we are getting a lot of calls about what to do so that’s what this video is gonna be about.
So if an ICE officer does come to your door they can only open the door in two situations:
- Do they have consent? That means do you allow them to enter? And if you allow them then in by opening your door up and say they can come in.
- Reason number two would be if there’s an order that would allow them to enter. So they would need to have an actual order that allows them to enter.
If you are not in one of those two situations, then they cannot enter and you can refuse entry.
If you have questions you can contact us at (916) 613-3553
So we talked about two reasons right now:
- one if you open the door and let them in or if they have an order that allows them to enter;
- otherwise if you say you don’t want them to enter they’re not allowed to enter;
We also give to our clients something called a red card where you can slide this under the door informing the officer that you don’t want them to enter unless they have an order and if you’d like to get that free from us you can contact us at (916) 613-3553 and we’d be happy to give that to you.
I want to thank you so much for joining today and we will see you next week thank you and have an awesome day.

Alright so today, we are gonna talk about the latest and greatest immigration trends and we’re going to talk about DACA. As you know with this administration we’re talking about the “loco” things that are going on… so eighty-six percent of Americans support DACA and there’s current house legislation that has been worked on to help make DACA happen because people who came here as children deserve to be legal.
Trump is receiving a lot of pressure from Republicans and Democrats and the courts on DACA, so we have to just keep on continuing to let our Congress people know that we support DACA so that something passes. Now moving on to the latest trend, what is happening – can you believe that immigration is finally moving on to electronic applications??!!
So this isn’t in all the applications it’s just some right now, but they’ve indicated that that’s the direction that they want to go: they want to become modernized and what I have to say is it’s about time! You know with many other different agencies you can file electronically as we’re not in the dinosaur ages anymore where we need to mail in applications – it’s such a waste of resources and time. USCIS has rolled this out with a couple of applications and we’ll see where they go with it just.
Continue to check in, watch our videos if you haven’t had a chance subscribe to our youtube channel so you can continue to stay informed. If you have questions you can call us at (916) 613-3553 or post your question below.
Thanks and have an awesome day.

The current administration is moving to close USCIS‘ field offices around the world.
Clients should note that USCIS and the Department of Homeland security are set to coordinate in order to avoid any delays in the processing of applications. However, clients should anticipate that there may be delays in the scheduling of their interviews, processing of their visa, etc.
It is important to remember that this does not mean closure of embassies/consulates altogether.
In the past, USCIS – the agency that processes green card applications within the U.S. – would deny applications if the person applying for the green card is likely to be a public charge, meaning someone who is living off of cash benefits rather than working for income. To get around this, applications would require Form I-864, showing that a U.S. citizen or permanent resident made enough income to ‘sponsor’ the green card applicant.
With this new rule, that form will no longer be enough. If the proposed rule is enacted, here are some changes that will take place:
- it is not just cash benefits, but any kind of benefit being considered (including: non-emergency Medi-cal, CHIP, even Obamacare subsidies);
- the Form I-864 will now just be one factor in determining public charge and sometimes won’t be enough;
- immigration is now considering how likely someone is to need assistance in the future, meaning that even if you have a good job now, being of old age or in poor health might lead to a green card denial, and
- even if you are not receiving public benefits now, but have in the past, you could still be denied a green card. There are other changes being proposed as well, and some are just downright cruel.
If you would like to know how these changes might affect your green card application, or if you think you might qualify for a green card in the future, give our office a call at (916) 613-3553 to assess the possibilities in your case. More than ever, it’s important to get the right kind of help.

First of all let’s get to the exciting news:
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld the fact that you can renew for DACA which is great news! This was upholding the lower district court judge’s decision on grounds that Trump’s ending of DACA was based off of racial animus. The Ninth Circuit, which is the higher court, has upheld that so a bottom line for now, DACA is you can now continue to renew your applications.
