This past June 18th, the United States Supreme Court ruled that the government’s attempt to end DACA was unlawful. The court found that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security does have the authority to end DACA, but that it had proceeded in an arbitrary and capricious manner in doing so, thus the ending of the program is illegal.

This is a life changing decision for thousands of young immigrants who were brought to this country as children. It allows them to continue to life, work, and pursue an education in the United States. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has yet to implement the changes, but the decision provides a temporary stop to the end of the program, as multiple challenges to DACA continue to move through the courts. Once new guidelines are implemented, initial applications for DACA-eligible individuals and new applications for Advance Parole (travel permits) should be accepted by the government.

Immigration law continues to be a fascinating and interesting topic of conversation in our country. It is volatile and complex and one of the many questions that arise are typically linked to issues on asylum. This particular area of immigration law has many layered and detailed nuances that might confuse asylum seekers and it is important to know them to better see if any potential candidates can apply to it or not.

Understanding asylum

Each year, there are thousands of foreigners who choose to enter into the United States seeking asylum from their home countries. Asylum is the protection that a country can grant unto a person who is classified as a refugee.


The U.S. immigration system has been in a state of flux for some time now. Officials seem determined to change even longstanding, fundamental aspects of the process. One of the latest targets? The cost of immigration.

In 2020, immigrating to the U.S. will likely become much more expensive for most people. Here are some of the biggest expected changes.

A fee for asylum seekers

When the current White House administration announced the proposed fee changes in November of 2019, many people highlighted the impact on asylum seekers. Traditionally, the U.S. has not charged individuals looking for this type of humanitarian help. That is in line with the rest of the world – currently, only three countries require asylum seekers to pay a fee.


Texas is the fastest-growing state in America. And in industries like construction, retail trade and manufacturing, employers look to immigrant workers to provide for their business.

However, as talks about E-Verify requirements for all Texas employers continue, such rules could cause substantial damage if they get approved.

What is it?

E-Verify is an electronic web-based system that allows certain employers to confirm their workers are U.S. citizens. Employers use E-Verify to check a new hire’s employment eligibility by matching information from their I-9 forms.
