Immigration laws debated across the country

All across the country, including in North Carolina, states are dealing with immigration laws and the political debates they inspire. Immigration law is constantly changing and in recent years have been the source of a heated debate among our nation's leaders.

North Carolina to issue driver's licenses to immigrants' children

In family immigration situations, it is not unusual for children to be born in other countries and then brought into the United States while they are still young. However, when these children are undocumented immigrants, they can run into problems down the road when it comes to finding employment and enjoying the privileges the United States has to offer. However, US immigration law is changing to address these undocumented children.

Senator introduces his proposal for immigration reform

Florida Senator Marco Rubio released an introduction to his forthcoming proposal for comprehensive immigration reform earlier this week. He emphasized that his approach would "modernize" American immigration policy by focusing more resources and visa availability for those seeking a path to citizenship through employment-based immigration and merit-based immigration. In addition, the plan will allow certain undocumented immigrants currently residing in the U.S. to become citizens through a permanent residency provision.

DOMA and same-sex spouse deportation risk

Last week we began a discussion about the intersection between comprehensive immigration reform and the needs of same-sex couples. We noted that the Congressional Hispanic Caucus has cited reform of bi-national same-sex immigration as a primary principle for advocacy in the upcoming legislative session. However, current federal family-based immigration law may soon result in the deportation of an untold number of same-sex immigrant spouses currently residing in the United States.
