Immigration

The Challenge

Constantly changing immigration legislation, coupled with already complicated eligibility requirements, serve to keep immigrants in the shadows. Assistance from a trustworthy immigration attorney or accredited representative is essential. However, immigrants often fall prey to unqualified help. It can be a tremendously daunting task to decipher topics such as:

  • Immigration & related federal agencies
  • Types of visas
  • Qualified legal/immigration assistance
  • Eligibility requirements

Information

ÉXITO EN EL NORTE helps unravel the multiple aspects that comprise successful U.S. immigration. Since each immigration case is truly unique, the Immigration video/DVD stresses the importance of seeking qualified immigration assistance. Because family-based immigration is one of the most common ways immigrants come to this country, this topic receives special emphasis. As an overall aim, this video/DVD gives inspiration to would-be citizens through real-life interviews with naturalized American citizens. Highlights include:

  • Immigration and enforcement agencies (DHS, USCIS, ICE, etc.)
  • Non-immigrant visas (tourist, working, student)
  • Immigrant visas
  • Legal permanent residency
  • Familial sponsorship
  • Legal/immigration assistance
  • Citizenship test
  • Benefits and responsibilities of citizenship

Tools

In response to the complicated and changing nature of immigration law, several national and non-profit agencies offer access to direct immigration services. Some state and local resources may also furnish other legal or more general immigration-related services and/or resources. Please consult the printed resource guides that accompany this video/DVD for information on these local resources. Below, find a link to a listing of federal and/or national resources (many of which supply direct, local assistance). These cover both legal and general immigration resources.
