Immigration Status Matters; Are You an Undocumented Immigrant?

The United States Federal Government takes the enforcement of its borders seriously and requires every person in this country to have a what they refer to as a "Legal Status". A "legal status" can be obtained in many different ways and normally begins with proper inspection and admission at the border. Once a non-citizen is deemed "admissible" into the United States for their stated intention by a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol Agent they are then deemed to have entered with a legal status. This intention for visiting the United States varies for each individual, but it should coincide with the type of visa applied for as a result of the status sought, immigrant visa versus non-immigrant visa. There are many different ways to pursue a visa and admission into the United States. Our team of immigration attorneys is ready to handle all of your United States immigration matters. There are very important requirements and deadlines that have been set and MUST be adhered to in order to maintain a legal status at all times as defined by the process described above. 

How are the United States' Immigration Laws Created? 

The United States' government is determined by the United States' Constitution. U.S. Citizens have the right to vote for their own citizens to represent them in their government. This form of government, a democracy, gives us the freedom to vote for individuals with ideas we support. These individuals then work to pass laws that control the population and place restraints on our freedom. The U.S. Constitution gives Congress the power to control immigration laws. They work to pass laws that govern and, or, authorize federal agencies to work on their behalf. Depending on the purpose for visiting the United States a foreign national must apply with the appropriate federal agency and file with the agency proper paperwork which they have prescribed to be used. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services agency deals with immigrant matters and the State Department of the United States government deals with non-immigrant visa matters. Matters concerning obtaining a green card or the visa lottery can involve both issues and an alien or immigrant should consult with an immigration attorney to obtain legal services.
