Here are five USCIS changes in immigration regulations and policy updates that affect legal immigrants with visas and green cards in the United States and likely will increase deportations in 2019.

In 2018, the Trump administration pushed to cut down on legal immigration and strengthen the Department of Homeland Security’sability to enforce immigration laws.

Among the changes were U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services(USCIS) regulations and procedures that affect immigrants who entered legally the United States — particularly pertaining to deportations. However, not all of the new rules are punitive. Some help foreign citizens obtain immigration benefits such as green cards or permanent residence.

Here is a summary by AccesoMiami.com of five changes or updates in U.S. immigration regulations that will affect immigrants in 2019.

New deportation guidelines

 

A new procedure for issuing Notices to Appear or NTAs expands the list of reasons for which immigrants can be summoned to appear before immigration judges to start deportation procedures.

The updated list includes violations of federal or state programs related to “the reception of public benefits”, fraudulent or criminal activity, and denials of immigration benefits such as a visa that result in the loss of status to remain legally in U.S territory.


 

 

Taking a break from VJ.  I am looking for pro immigration forum, and in too many aspects, this is not it.

Good luck to everyone, see you on up the trail.
