Rectifying The Inherent Inequality In The Immigration Law System
Having practiced Criminal Defense, Immigration Law, Deportation Defense, and Civil Rights Law in New York City for the past 10 years, I have observed that an unfortunate and inherent characteristic of the Immigration Law System in this country involves a major flaw at its core - the “Beneficiary/Sponsor” relationship.
This flawed process vests too much power and authority into the hands of regular Americans and companies, without care for whether or not they are good people, mentally sane, cruel, racist, or otherwise deeply flawed individuals. It literally gives them the power of life and death over tens of millions of foreigners who reside in the United States. If that “Sponsor” decides to, on a whim, they can overturn, disrupt, and ravage the lives that the “Beneficiary” has built up over years, sometimes decades, thus destroying not only their lives, but the lives of their dependents and family members depending on them for their next meal or their homes.
Whether its an unscrupulous Employer or Abusive Spouse (male or female) who pulls the rug out from under the unfortunate but hopelessly dependent Employee or Spouse (male or female), the results are always the same - abyss for the Beneficiary. That’s why its always important, at every immigration consultation that I have ever done, that I ask if that person who is now in the throes of Immigration oblivion, if they were ever married, employed, or a victim of crime. Astonishingly, nearly 90% of the time, this was the case, and that individual is eligible for either a VAWA Petition (spousal abuse if married to a US Citizen/Greencard Holder), a U Visa Petition (victim of crime from an undocumented spouse in the US or other unscrupulous Sponsor or company paying below minimum wages or other labor violations), or an S Visa (the Immigrant having knowledge of crime), or a T Visa (victim of trafficking).
Unfortunately, oppression, slavery, exploitation, and abuse were inherent characteristics of this Nation when it was founded, as this country was built on the backs of slave labor while exterminating the indigenous people living in the United States, and old habits die hard. The Immigration Law system in this country has unfortunately (whether consciously or not) inherited this bloody and unfair legacy of oppression on those less fortunate for the enrichment and aggrandizement of its oppressors.
Together we can surgically excise that inherent cruelty from the US Federal government and its Immigration Legal Codes, by asking the right questions, and rescuing our nation’s most vulnerable populations (the Immigrants) from the deathgrip and jaws of tyranny by pursuing the types of immigration relief and remedies I have described above.
I am a “bulldog” Criminal Defense/Immigration Law/Deportation Defense Attorney, and I promise you that if I am your Attorney, I will not relent or ever give up on you or your case, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, or creed.
As a minority myself, I have seen the serious abuses of the system and the oppressive/unfair/racial discriminatory treatment meted out by those officials charged with safeguarding our Judicial and Criminal Justice System, and I remember that each and every single time I take on a new case, I make sure to inject into all of my Associate Attorneys and Legal Staff the same passion, indignation, fighting spirit, and protection of the civil and god given inalienable rights of each and every client I have the privilege to represent, whether their case is big or small, it doesn’t matter. It’s your life, and you want and need the BEST.
