Under President Trump’s enforcement priorities, every noncitizen that is deportable from the United States would seem to be a priority. The prioritization of everyone for deportation represents a change from previous priorities under the Obama administration and has led a climate of fear in immigrant communities. In such a climate, the need for accurate information is greater than ever. ICE’s Denver Field Office, in its communications with the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and other local bar associations, has provided information intended to dispel rumors, including the following:
This information from ICE is subject to change. In the meantime, all people should know and understand their rights and know whether they might qualify to apply immigration status or relief from deportation. Knowing one’s rights and potential options prior to any interaction with immigration officials may give you peace of mind—or at least an educated understanding of what may or may not come to pass. To set up a consultation to discuss your immigration situation with one of our immigration attorneys, call our office at 303-297-9171.
