Immigration Law in 2014
What changes can we expect to see in immigration law in 2014?
New laws affecting immigrants have already gone into effect as of January 1, 2014.
Previously, under the “Secure Communities” program, many immigrants were placed on an “ICE hold” even for low-level offenses. Under the California Trust Act, state and local jails will only hold immigrants for ICE if they have committed serious or violent crimes. Hopefully, this will result in fewer immigrants being placed into removal proceedings.
