I overstayed my visa. Now what?

Our lead attorney, Mana Yegani, was recently interviewed by the Houston Chronicle for a news report on people who entered the country legally on a visa, and then stayed in the country after the visa had expired.

What is the status of DAPA and expanded DACA?

As you probably already know, President Barack Obama took executive action in November of last year aimed at helping millions of immigrants stay in the United States legally. The Obama Administration did this by taking two steps:

Criminal defense: Know your rights before entering a plea

Keeping America safe is one of the duties of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement. With that in mind, the agency seeks to remove people who are in the country illegally and who are considered a threat to the citizens.

Mom facing deportation after failing to seek care for injured son

A Texas woman may be deported from the United States because of her son's broken foot. The McAllen woman was targeted because she failed to report an assault that had occurred on the teenager, allowing his injury to persist for nearly a month. The woman is facing these deportation proceedings largely because she did not have the money to pay for necessary medical procedures. She is now mounting a criminal defense against allegations of failing to report a felony and injury of a child.

Even though controversy surrounding immigration and immigration reform continues, new information indicates that the number of deportations throughout Texas and the rest of the nation may actually drop for the first time in 10 years. In fact, experts say that the numbers have decreased by more than 10 percent, signaling a shift to a six-year low in deportation rates.
