DON’T GET SCAMMED!
What You Need to Know About Recent DHS
In August, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that it would be reviewing all cases pending in immigration court and temporarily closing low priority cases. In November, it announced that it had begun thecase review process and issued three documents explaining the review: Memo on Case Review Process; Guidance to ICE Attorneys; and ICE Next Steps. For more information, visit www.aila.org/pd.
This case review is NOT an amnesty and it is NOT about giving people work permits or legal status. You should NOT turn yourself into the immigration authorities because of these announcements.
Do NOT believe anyone who tells you they can get you a work permit (Employment Authorization Document or “EAD”) or legal status based on this case review process! Anyone who says this or makes other guarantees is not to be trusted!
There is NO “safe” way to turn yourself in to immigration and there is NO guarantee that your case will be considered “low priority.” ANY person who comes into contact with immigration authorities may be arrested, detained or even removed.
Only a QUALIFIED IMMIGRATION LAWYER can evaluate your case and tell you about your rights.
Do NOT seek legal advice from a notario or immigration consultant.
