¿Hillary Pasará Una Reforma Inmigratoria?

Hillary CLinton 2016 Award

Fusion.net Hillary 2016 Poll Picture

Hillary Clinton tiene una historia complicada con el tema de inmigración. Cuando era la Primera Dama en la Administración de su esposo, el Presidente Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton apoyó la Reforma de Inmigración Ilegal y Responsabilidad del Inmigrante (Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act, IIRIRA) de 1996. Esta ley discriminatoria causó un aumento inmenso de deportaciones por simples violaciones de leyes civiles o administrativas, no criminales. Las herramientas disponibles para los abogados de inmigración también cambiaron drásticamente con IIRIRA. Entre otras cosas, bajo esta ley, un inmigrante puede ser considerado un “criminal” aunque su ofensa sea solo una infracción de tráfico. IIRIRA también creó el programa infame “287(g),” el cual permitió la colaboración entre departamentos de policía y agentes federales de inmigración con la meta de deportar criminales. Más que ser una herramienta para deportar criminales, el programa 287(g) fue una trágica herramienta para construir un sistema de deportación en masa, y otro ejemplo de la discriminación contra la comunidad extranjera.
Cuando la candidata Clinton era senadora de Nueva York, desde el 2001 hasta el 2009, apoyó propuestas de leyes inmigratorias que abrirían el camino para la legalización de los millones de inmigrantes indocumentados en los Estados Unidos. También votó a favor de fortalecer y ampliar el muro entre la frontera de México con los Estados Unidos, sin contemplar la política de los Estados Unidos que causa la migración en Las Américas. Esta posición miope sobre la migración no ha cambiado mucho con la carrera política de Hillary Clinton.
Durante su primera candidatura para la presidencia de los Estados Unidos en el 2008, Hillary Clinton repitió frecuentemente que los inmigrantes “criminales” deberían de ser deportados sin ningún proceso legal. En ese entonces, la candidata Clinton dijo que estaba opuesta a una ley estatal que permitiría las licencias de conducir para los inmigrantes indocumentados de Nueva York. Ahora que la candidata Clinton se ha lanzado para la presidencia por segunda vez, ella denuncia las políticas inmigratorias de su esposo. También dice que apoya la Acción Diferidita (DACA y DAPA) del Presidente Barack Obama y a una vía para aplicar para la ciudadanía, políticas que son apoyadas por la mayoría de la población en los Estados Unidos. Quizás el cambio que más demuestra una evolución sobre la política inmigratoria es su anuncio de su nueva posición apoyando leyes estatales que permiten licencias de conducir para los inmigrantes indocumentados.
Sea que este cambio es una mejora o una calculación política, todavía queda mucho por explicar y por comprobar. Hillary Clinton tiene la oportunidad de ser no solo la primera mujer presidenta de los Estados Unidos, sino también la primera Demócrata en cumplir con sus promesas a la comunidad inmigrante en general.

Argumento de Acción Ejecutiva Programado para Abril.

Indocumentados en ProtestaIndocumentados en ProtestaLa Acción Ejecutiva del Presidente Obama DACA -programa de extensión de Acción Diferida para dreamers y DAPA- programa de acción diferida para padres de ciudadanos o residentes permanentes en Estados Unidos,  anunciada el 20 de noviembre de 2014 protege alrededor de 5 millones de indocumentados, suspende la deportación y autoriza permisos de trabajo. En términos de acciones ejecutivas en la historia, en el área de inmigración, esta tal vez sería la mejor. Abogados y organizaciones en todo el pais continúan educando la comunidad y notificando sobre precauciones en respecto a posibles estafas.

Se planeaba que la extensión DACA entraría en efecto el 18 de febrero de 2015. Debido a la demanda interpuesta  el 3 de diciembre de 2014 por 26 estados entre ellos Texas, Alabama, Carolina del Norte, Carolina del Sur, Dakota del Sur, Dakota del norte, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, Utah, Virginia Occidental, Wisconsin,  Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Michigan, Tennessee, Ohio y Oklahoma, en contra de la  acción ejecutiva, un juez federal de Texas (Andrew S. Hanen) ordenó la suspensión temporal de esta acción ejecutiva en Febrero 16, del 2015. New Jersey ha entrado también, como un estado en contra de la acción del presidente.  Dando como resultado el aplazo de los beneficios para más de 5 millones de indocumentados en todo el país.

Actualmente la Corte de Apelaciones del Quinto Circuito en Nueva Orleans, Louisiana fijó fecha de audiencia para 17 de abril solicitado por el Departamento de Justicia (DOJ) para desbloquear la Acción Ejecutiva del Presidente Barack Obama. Los abogados de inmigración de Diaspora Law, tenemos la fe y espera que aunque un poco retrasada, DACA y DAPA serán eventualmente aprobadas.

The Best Lawyer for those who need justice.

When I met Mr Barbosa, after being given a recommendation by a very good friend, I had already been through a whole range of lawyers in different cities , most of whom , would not take my case. I had almost lost hope but my friend insisted that we need to talk to Mr Barbosa. After listening to my case details, Mr Barbosa was the only lawyer who took my case. He asked for a very nominal flat fee but worked very very hard on my case. Throughout the entire process, I could call him or email him any time and he would always respond the same day and never charged me any extra for all of it. Mr Barbosa helped me get justice when all seemed lost. Mr Barbosa is truely a very good person as well as a great lawyer who truely believes in justice and fights for it. I can never thank him enough for how he helped me and my family and I am truely very grateful to him. Today my family has a better life because of Mr Barbosa. Thank you Mr Barbosa. Thank you very much!

A Great Representative

Mr. Barbosa was a great lawyer. He was very easy to understand and made us feel like we were his number one priority. Very knowledgeable and trustworthy in a field full of money hungry lawyers capitalizing on immigrants who are sometimes lead to believe there’s a chance when there’s really not. Barbosa will tell you how it is and the reality of your case. Would recommend him to anyone out there seeking honest and trustworthy representation.

LGBT marriage petition approved! Great Service!!

After the June 26, 2014 supreme court decision overturning DOMA, my wife and I decided that we wanted to be formally married. To give a bit of background, she was already in the country legally for a year on an F1 visa. After the supreme court decision, we wanted to submit the I-130, I-485 Adjustment of Status and the I-765 Employment Authorization. To say that everything required by USCIS is overwhelming is an understatement. We turned to Mr. Barbosa to help guide us through the process and ensure that we left no stone unturned. He was AMAZING from start to finish. He always made sure to be available when we needed him or had questions. He went above and beyond to make sure our case was being handled appropriately. Since we didn’t know much about the process, we really had to trust him with our case. Luckily, he didn’t let us down. He really takes the time to know the details of his clients and design a custom strategy for whatever your needs are. After the horrible experiences we had with previous attorneys, Mr. Barbosa was a god-send. I will never turn to anyone else ever again. He is definitely our attorney from now on. We did exactly what he told us to do, we trusted whatever he did on our behalf and during the final marriage interview, it was exactly as he had predicted. We were approved immediately at the end of the interview! This was not luck. It was because he had us completely prepared. Since he had prepared everything so meticulously and since he prepped us on the process so clearly, everything went super smoothly at the interview. And last but not least, he was priced VERY fairly, as compared to other quotes we received from other attorneys. If you want a person who actually CARES and really does keep his word, I would highly recommend Mr. Barbosa. A+ all the way!
