Immigration update: Obama Administration Relaxing Deportation Case Criteria


Recently the Obama administration directed that ICE relax its immigrant pick-up rules.  In other words, if you do not have a criminal history and are out of status or have arrived in the United States without inspection and pose no threat, you are unlikely to be placed into removal/deportation proceedings.  However, it is still important to not violate other laws such as driving without a license or other traffic offenses since state laws are enforced no matter what your immigration status is.
