What A Donald Trump Presidency Means For Immigration

Juandekruyff

Well, a lot has happened in the last month about immigration.  We are still waiting to hear from Donald Trump about what his plans are for DACA.  He’s made some encouraging comments in the last month, but Donald Trump is not a man you can judge by his words.  He contradicts himself so often that the only way to judge him is by his actions.  So when he takes office later this month, we may know what Donald Trump plans to do about immigration. I recommend to anyone thinking about renewing their DACA permits or to apply for DACA for the first time to make the application because I have read about several Republican congressmen and senators that like the DACA program and want to see it continue. I know there is a lot of support for continuing it among senators and representatives, so I don’t think Trump will use up all of his political power to cancel DACA.

As far as other immigration processes, I don’t think much is going to change about any of that. It’s possible he might try to arrest more people who have orders of deportation or who are illegally here, but we won’t know that either until Trump takes office.  I’ll have more information about this in my next blog post after Trump actually becomes the first internet troll president.

 

Filing Fees Have Increased

As far as information about forms, some of you may have heard that filing fees went up, and yes, they did.  The average form went up by $50.  I don’t like it but there’s nothing anyone can do about it.  I would like to add that I have not raised my attorney fees on any of the work I do for the last 8 years.  Immigrants keep America running and they do almost all of the hard labor in our country. I know this because I see it every day in my clients. I want to continue to be the lowest price option for all those immigrants out there that can’t afford those really expensive lawyers out there.

 

Passing My Savings On To You

That brings me to my last point. Advertising is the biggest or 2nd biggest monthly expense for most lawyers out there, but I’ve chosen not to advertise and pass the savings from that along to my clients. So to my clients out there that are happy with my services and my prices, I ask that you to google my name and leave a review on google or go to yelp and leave me a review there too so I can continue to be visible to people searching for an immigration lawyer without having to spend a lot of money on advertising.
