Immigration Limbo: A Brief Report on the Effect of the Texas Injunction

As we reported last month, United States District Judge Andrew S. Hanen issued a temporary injunction which has stopped portions of President Obama's Executive Action on immigration in its tracks. At this time, the Department of Homeland Security/USCIS has halted the plans while the Administration appeals the court's injunction and continues to defend the lawsuit in federal court in Brownsville, Texas. As of this writing, DAPA (Deferred Action for Parental Accountability) and the new DACA...

Q&A: Our family member/friend is detained by ICE . . . how might we help?!

This is perhaps the most common - and most frustrating - inquiry we receive on a weekly basis. Right now, after a short period of somewhat relaxed immigration enforcement, U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) is pursuing undocumented individuals aggressively and relentlessly. The scariest part of the process for concerned family members, employers, and friends is that they often do not even know how where the arrested person is being held. Because of the mass numbers of detainees,...

2016 Preview: Where do the candidates stand on immigration reform?

From our main offices in Manchester, New Hampshire, we have a front-row seat to the campaign for the presidential nomination in 2016. Even though the primary is still eight months away, declared and undeclared candidates are streaming through the state, making speeches, holding events, shaking hands. Rumor has it that some are kissing babies, but we have not seen that personally. And, while electing the next President of the United States is important for myriad reasons, the fate of...

2016 Presidential Politics: GOP Candidates Talk Immigration

As expected, the Republican presidential primary field continues to grow. And with that growth comes each candidate's efforts to garner some attention, mostly in an effort to distinguish him or herself from the rest of the crowded field.

Primary 2016: Immigration Takes Center Stage

Last night, the New Hampshire Union Leader convened 14 of the declared 17 republican presidential candidates at what might best be called a "pre-debate debate". In an anticipatory response to Fox News' decision to limit its own initial GOP debate - to be televised on August 5th -to the top ten candidates as gauged by national polls, The Union Leader organized the event in the First-In-The-Nation primary state. The debate was televised live by C-Span, and was also broadcast on local stations...

Primary 2016: The GOP Draws Immigration Lines

Last night, Fox Business News hosted the fourth Republican primary debate, heldin Milwaukee, the largest city in the perceived 2016 swing state of Wisconsin. Eight candidates took to the stage, a departure from the double-digit podium presencesseen in the first three exchanges. With current polling defying much of the conventional electoral wisdom, the candidates continue to seek to set themselves apart from one another.
