2017-10-26T18:08:04+00:00

Immigration Officer Offered Protection for Sex and Cash By:  The Fogle Law Firm, LLC It’s not enough we have the Trump Administration relentlessly waging war on immigrants and the and not doing anything to fix our broken immigration system, there is also the continuing problem of corruption within our Immigration agencies. Former Immigration officer Arnaldo Echevarria, 40, of the Somerset section of Franklin Township, New Jersey, was sentenced to 7 years in Federal Penitentiary for asking for and accepting sex and also what officials have calculated to be over $75,000 in bribe money to protect illegal immigrants. With so much effort [...]

The demographics of Immigration

2017-08-23T15:36:10+00:00

The demographics of Immigration clearly show what we've always known. That the United States of America was quite literally built on immigration. However, current US immigration rules and laws are highly complex and are often quite tricky to figure out and there is a lot of complicated bureaucracy that might make things all the more complicated. When you really think about it, it is really impossible to ignore the weight and influence that immigration has had throughout the course of US history. Whether they came to America to escape persecution and war in their native country, or simply moved to the States [...]

The End of NSEERS

2017-01-09T15:17:21+00:00

The End of NSEERS By H. Glenn Fogle, Jr, Esq. The week before Christmas, President Obama ordered the Department of Homeland Security to finally terminate the shuttered “Muslim” registration program known as the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS).  Though not “specifically” directed at Muslims (as that would clearly be unconstitutional), NSEERS required males over 16 years of age from 25 predominantly Muslim countries (excepting North Korea) to register with the government—whether they were already here or upon entry.  The program, developed in 2002 was basically abandoned at the end of 2003, although it was not officially suspended until 2011, due [...]

WHAT ABOUT THE DREAMERS? By: H. Glenn Fogle, Jr., Esq. After the DREAM Act, which was designed to assist children who were brought by their parents to the United States either without inspection or no longer in status, was defeated in the Senate in late 2010 and early 2011, President Obama issued an executive order known as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), designed to assist those individuals who would have benefited from the DREAM Act. DACA placed a group of people who were brought to United States as children and were attending or had graduated from high school in a [...]

Immigration Makes America Great

2016-12-06T19:39:26+00:00

Immigration Makes America Great by: H. Glenn Fogle, Jr., Esq. The continued arrival of immigrants into the American colonies and later the United States has been a constant since the new world was discovered by the Europeans in the late 1400s. Because of this, our country has brought the best, brightest and most motivated from around the world to contribute to making our country the greatest in the world. There have been times in the past where the established population has tried to keep new immigrants to our country out by either social and societal discrimination or even legal discrimination written [...]

Signals on Immigration from Trump Administration

2016-11-23T06:42:59+00:00

Signals on Immigration from Trump Administration By H. Glenn Fogle, Jr., Esq., November 22, 2016 Based on those either nominated for cabinet positions or advising the President-Elect on immigration, America looks like it is returning to the post-911 days of paranoia and scapegoating of immigrants—particularly of the Muslim faith. It appears that Trump advisor, Kris Kobach, the Kansas Secretary of State, and author and proponent of many State anti-immigrant laws around the country, which have been declared unconstitutional in part or whole, is promoting his agenda in the ear of the President-Elect of the United States [PEOTUS].  He was seen Monday, [...]

Immigration Landscape Under Trump Presidency By H. Glenn Fogle, Jr., Principal Member of The Fogle Law Firm, LLC We here at The Fogle Law Firm, LLC are still trying to digest the election results and the fact that an individual with no government experience, was elected to the presidency by a minority of the electorate and less than one sixth of the population.  However, at this juncture, there is nothing we can do to change what has happened and we have to deal with the cards that we have been dealt.  Many in the immigrant communities are worried and fearful of [...]
