Hi, I saw on the news that there is at least 9 U.S. cities to be targeted by ICE raids, and I was wondering could that affect someone waiting for the approval notice of the waiver? I mean, someone who never had any legal issues before and doesn't have any removal proceeding on pause? Does anyone know the answer for that? just waiting for the answer from uscis and nvc is just waiting too.

According to the news, They are looking for those you are either A:  Those who have committed a crime or B: those who already went to court and the court issued an Order of Removal, and that Immigrant did not self deport, so they are in essence, in violation of a court order, which can be a crime in itself.  If you do not fit either A or B,  I would not worry about it.

As noted, your circumstances don’t fall under the claimed raid criteria.

 

If you are currently in the US illegally, there is always the chance of being caught and detained and/or put into removal hearings. Just because one isn’t a target of current raids doesn’t mean it gets overlooked and can’t be an issue either.

As far as I know the new law is that they are now doing expedited removals which means that people can be deported without having a chance at an immigration court hearing, that is even for people with no record. Specially for people that can’t prove that they have been here for longer than two years. What I was told by an immigration lawyer was that it was a good idea to scan your marriage license, i130 approval and your i601a approval if you already have it and have the copies on your phone so that if you are stopped by an immigration officer you can show it to them and prove that you have a case in process. Now if you have a criminal record or are caught doing something illegal then not even that can save you
