Immigration Round Table, February 28th, 2017

Kissimmee, Florida, February 28th, 2017 – The first 100 days of the Donald Trump Administration have been tough to keep up with in terms of changing immigration law. First, a travel ban on seven majority Muslim nations raised many constitutional questions. Second, the Department of Homeland Security released on February 25th, 2017 a memorandum announcing sweeping changes in the matter of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Among the changes, included the expansion of 10,000 new Customs and Border Patrol agents in addition to 10,000 new Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. It is clear that the Trump Administration intends to make good on its promise to remove millions of undocumented immigrants. However, among the critical issues discussed at the round table is the potential treatment of DACA recipients. Shortly, after this meeting took place a DACA recipient in Mississippi was ordered removed from the United States event though she had a pending DACA renewal application. This treatment of pending applications and the expansion of expedited removal has the immigrant community alarmed. Our office is doing its best to keep up with these sweeping changes and keep our clients and the immigrant community informed. For more information, please contact us at 1-888-585-9837 or email
