Countdown to Administrative Relief: New Enforcement Priority FAQs (Webinar 5)
On June 17th, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) relating to the new immigration enforcement priorities memo issued by the Obama Administration on November 20, 2014. These FAQs explain the three priority categories of immigrants that are at greatest risk for deportation.
On this webinar, panelists analyze the new FAQs in light of the original enforcement priorities memo and discuss what this guidance means for clients and community members. Some of the issues covered in the FAQs that will are discussed include: DUIs, identity-theft offenses, significant misdemeanors, and the type of immigration violations that trigger enforcement for “significant visa abuse.” Time was also reserved for questions.
