DREAMERS AND FAMILIES FACE UNCERTAIN TIMES AS CONGRESS DEBATES IMMIGRATION Today congress embarks on a debate that could lead to an immigration bipartisan fix. With the March 5, 2018 deadline quickly approaching, the fate of roughly 700,000 people enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA remain in limbo. As the debate begins it is anyone’s guess what the outcome will be as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has moved towards unleashing a free-for-all debate over Dreamers as his own endgame continues to be a mystery. “The goal is for the Senate to vote on immigration proposals and [...]


American Casualties Continue in War on Immigration


American Casualties Continue in War on Immigration  By:  The Fogle Law Firm, LLC When we say American casualties, we are not talking about physical deaths. We are describing some completely and utterly unacceptable happening to American Citizens as a result of the Trump administration’s war on immigration.  Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is actually detaining and deporting to a foreign land more and more actual US citizens due to immigration errors and our broken immigration system. One story is that of American citizen, Lorenzo Palma, who moments from being released from completing a five-year sentence in prison for assault was intercepted [...]

Sanctuary State Official


California Governor Makes “Sanctuary State” Official By: The Fogle Law Firm Earlier today California Gov. Jerry Brown made a move that resulted in the creation of yet another tool that can be used to fight President Trump’s war on immigration. The Signing of the “Sanctuary State” legislation extends protections for the immigrants here illegally. What does this bill actually mean for California and its immigrant community? For starters police will be barred from asking people about their immigration status or participating in immigration enforcement activities beginning January 1st.

The Crime of Violence Flaw in Immigration Law By:  The Fogle Law Firm, LLC Firstly, on the topic of violence, our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, their families and loved ones from the country’s most devastating mass shooting in modern history, recently in Las Vegas.

More Warnings for President Donald Trump


More Warnings for President Donald Trump By: The Fogle Law Firm, LLC It may come as no surprise that there has been another round of serious grievances and warnings directed towards our Reality Show President and his administration. The Trump administration has announced its new travel restrictions that updates the President’s previous travel ban that was tied up in court and expired on September 24, 2017. Horrible timing does not seem to be an appropriate term when one looks at the fact this new unveiling comes as the Supreme Court was awaiting to hear arguments next month on the legality of [...]

Expanding Protection for Illegal Immigrants


Expanding protection for illegal immigrants seems to be the response from Los Angeles towards Donald Trumps aggressive immigration stance. Los Angeles might be well known for the bright California sun and the star-studded Hollywood hills, but it also has a well-deserved reputation as one of America’s biggest “sanctuary” cities.  Local authorities do not necessarily report to and/or hold people for Federal Immigration Agencies such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and they will not do the Federal government’s job by arresting and holding undocumented immigrants on the Federal government’s behalf. LA is certainly not playing an easy game: the Trump Administration [...]

Immigration Court System Overwhelmed


President Donald Trump already stressed his position on immigration even earlier on during his presidential campaign. Following his election, he stayed true to his pledge and initiated one of the heaviest crackdowns on undocumented immigration in current US history, causing panic among many minority communities across the United States. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers set out to pursue and track down many undocumented aliens as they could, arresting large numbers of people—so much so that the entire court system is currently struggling to handle the massive influx of cases. Ever since President Trump signed his executive order on immigration enforcement, [...]
