NYT: High Stakes on Immigration Check-Ins

The New York Times published this article regarding check-ins with deportation officers, featuring a former colleague of mine:

“ICE is more inclined to enforce, from their perspective, the immigration law,” Ms. David added, “and if you have a final order of removal, you’re going to have to try and rectify it.”

Or else, she said, deportation will follow.

There seems to be no consistent policy from one field office to the next, lawyers say. The immigration agency was not immediately able to provide statistics regarding those who were detained or deported as a result of their check-ins, or how the frequency of those check-ins had changed.

In short, they are not routine anymore. You should – and must – have some motion or application in process and should bring your attorney. If you don’t have an attorney, please get one to move your process along and allow immigration officers to put off any sort of action against you!
