At Gaston and Mentor, PLLC, we help businesses and families achieve their
immigration goals. And, we are committed to keeping our community informed about changes
in U.S. immigration laws as they emerge.
The President's exercise of his constitutional authority to issue executive
orders directs desperately needed resources to ICE for the removal of
criminal immigrants, such as murders, traffickers, and gang members, who
pose a clear and imminent danger to society. Meanwhile, families of mixed
immigration status can experience a measure of temporary reprieve from
the constant fear of separation. In addition, the executive action allows
members of our community to emerge from the shadows with government identification
and permission to work, which enriches our tax base and enhances our national security.
Flaws such as family visa backlogs of nearly twenty years, one-year processing
times for foreign investor visas, and stifling employment visa processes
that turn away talented noncitizen professionals cripple our nation's
ability to compete in the global economy. We remain hopeful that our Congress
will address these fundamental deficits through comprehensive immigration
