DON’T GET SCAMMED! What You Need to Know About Recent DHS Announcements

AILA, Dec. 30, 2011: "In August, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that it would be reviewing all cases pending in immigration court and temporarily closing low priority cases. In November, it announced that it had begun the case review process and issued three documents explaining the review: Memo on Case Review Process; Guidance to ICE Attorneys; and ICE Next Steps. For more information, visit www.aila.org/pd. This case review is NOT an amnesty and it is NOT about giving people work permits or legal status. You should NOT turn yourself into the immigration authorities because of these announcements."  AILA, Dec. 30, 2011.
