In June, the United States Supreme Court will decide whether a new kind of U.S. immigration law can go into effect.  Immigration law is rarely addressed by the Supreme Court, so this is a very important event.

In this television interview, I explain why the changes are so important to immigrant families.

In 2014, President Obama announced a new program for parents of U.S. Citizens. The program is known as DAPA (Deferred Action for Parental Accountability). It will allow parents of U.S. citizens to apply for legal status if they have been here for five years and have a minimal criminal record. Several states sued to block the program, but now the Supreme Court will make the final decision.

Immigrant families need more options for obtaining legal status in the United States. The U.S. immigration system is too complicated and too restrictive– it prevents many families from being united.

My job as a lawyer is to help you unite your family. Whether it’s your spouse, grandmother, sister or brother, I can help you bring your family to the United States.
