Legislative Branch

If you are not legal, let us help you go home....

The legislature should look at reducing the amount of money paid for services for illegal immigrants.

Medical bills are high, welfare is high, education is high.

I don't want to sound incentive, but we need to take care of our own people first.

If you are not legal we will help you return home 1 time the next time you are ordered to a work camp and then sent home. The next time you are caught you will be sent... more »

Immigration Services Fees

We are waisting manpower and resources by manually taking fees at each Immigration Office. USCIS is making forms electronic for processing, and the fees must be the same. The applicant should apply and pay the fees at the website by adding the secure pay site. This would save (at a minimum) on personnel (5), resources (paper/processing, training, machines & purchase and maintenance per USCIS Field Office. This eliminates... more »

Streamlining the Immigration Court Process

I am a student volunteer at Immigration and Customs Enforcement in one of the Offices of the Principal Legal Advisor. We have Notices To Appear (in court) sent to us - thousands of them.

Simplify the I-213 (I-861) writing process for ICE/CBP agents

I am a student volunteer at one of the Offices of the Principal Legal Advisor for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. My primary duty this summer has been to approve Notices To Appear (NTAs) as "legally sufficient" and then send them to Immigration Court. In order to approve the NTA, the information in the I-213 needs to match up.

As I've browsed over all these I-213s, I've noticed that the writing style and layout... more »
