A father of 3 facing serious US immigration law problems

Louisiana immigrants who have been living, working and raising families in the United States for more than 10 years are not guaranteed to avoid legal status problems, even though more than a decade has past since their arrivals. A man in another state, who is a husband and father of three, can attest to this fact. He has been living in the U.S. since 1992 and was recently taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers.

The man's  three children are U.S. citizens. For the past year, he has been living in the church where he sought sanctuary around Christmas time last year, after the U.S. government informed him that he was being ordered to leave the country. A request was made for immigration officials to place a stay on his deportation process while he tries to work out his legal status problems.

ICE says the request has been denied and that the man is considered a fugitive who is evading justice. The nearly 300 people who blocked the entrance to the federal building where ICE has an office disagree. They chained themselves together to protest the situation.

U.S. immigration law is complex and there are many legitimate reasons for government officials to halt the deportation process once it has begun. Any Louisiana family who is concerned about a loved one facing legal status issues can seek legal guidance to determine a best course of action. Such guidance often provides the support needed to resolve complicated immigration problems.
