U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is cracking down in Mississippi and across the country, and immigrants and their families need to be aware of their options for defending against deportation.
The status of immigrants in the United States often engenders sympathy among the public when a person has lived in our country for a long time but lacks the legal status to stay. One such case that has been in the news recently involves a Mexican man who spent the past 20 years living in Mississippi. He is now scheduled to be deported June 1.
Now is a time of extreme uncertainty for immigrants throughout the United States. Even "dreamers" - students protected by DACA - are fearful.
