Being married to a U.S. citizen does not halt deportation

Many people believe that if they marry a United States citizen, any risk of being deported is no longer an issue they need to worry about. However, immigration law changes in 1996 meant that even if someone was married to a U.S. citizen, they may still face deportation if they committed any kind of immigration violation. This has led to the break-up of families in virtually every state and Maryland, including one family in particular, as a 37-year-old man recently prepared to be deported back to Bangladesh.

Changing deportation laws put veterans in a bind

Whenever someone enlists to serve in the military, his or her immigration status may impact what can happen afterward. Typically, if someone serves and is categorized as a legal resident, he or she may not expect that deportation can occur. However, in 1996, it became easier to deport people who are in Maryland or other states legally even if they honorably served in the United States military.

Man pleads not guilty to immigration law violations

The process of entering the country can be long and complicated. Whether someone is granted asylum or granted a permanent resident card can hinge on their activities in their home country, namely if there are any criminal activities to be concerned with. Recently, a man from Bosnia, who entered the United States in 1998, was alleged to have broken immigration law by not disclosing important information about his past. Maryland readers may be interested in following the story.

Report finds deportation reasons differ by region

Even though federal laws and regulations are supposed to dictate how deportations are handled and why someone is subject to deportation, a recent report highlights how it is handled differently in various parts of the country. Currently, a record number of foreigners have been deported, and groups are calling more humane procedures to keep families together. Anyone in Maryland who may be subject to deportation or has a family member awaiting deportation may want to understand the procedures and variances by region.

Email scam targets those seeking a green card

Whenever someone is awaiting word or notification regarding their immigration status, the wait may seem like forever, and the timeline may be confusing. That wait may make some people in Maryland vulnerable to scams or misinformation. Recently, the U.S. Department of State put out a warning about a scam that is targeting people specifically awaiting word about green card status.
