Immigration in the Trump Era

Since President Donald Trump took office in January 2017, there have been profound, volatile, and drastic changes to our country’s immigration laws. Immigration in the Trump Era is our version of a recap of everything President Trump has done with regard to immigration, since taking office. Nearly every morning, Americans wake up to newly signed executive orders, and presidential proclamations, many of which have profound and lasting effects on immigration policies and/or law. When it comes to immigration, the Trump administration has made it its mission to make radical changes to laws put into place by his predecessors.

The topic of immigration, aside from being a contentious political topic, is very personal and emotional to those adversely affected by these changes. Our nation has been recognized as a melting pot by most other countries in the world, where dreams can come true and expectations can be fulfilled. The recent changes regarding the termination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and the Travel Ban, to name a few, are deeply troubling. These decisions have caused an uproar among the American public, and the international community, who disagree with the administration’s decisions.

This Immigration in the Trump Era page will provide you with posts written by San Diego immigration lawyer, Jacob Sapochnick, and his team of skilled and dedicated immigration lawyers. This page will serve as a one stop shop for all things Trump, and immigration related events, as well as informational posts, and guidance for those affected by these changes.

More so than any other president in the history of our nation, Trump has made overhauling immigration one of his top priorities, so much so that his policies have made headlines across the nation and the globe. The issue of immigration and the legality of individuals in the United States is being questioned on a daily basis, and the validity of their stay in the United States is now more than ever in danger. We are here to make sure that our community is taken care of, and that our readers explore all legal avenues available to them, even with the frequent and numerous changes being made by our government.

I trust you know how much all of us at the Spreckels Organ Society appreciate your incredible generosity in providing legal assistance with the visas required by the international artists last year during our International Summer Organ Festival. We consider it an honor that you and your firm provided this service, and were delighted to publicize your firm in our concert materials. George H.
That's good news on the approval of our 3 executive L1A visas. You fought a tough RFE, but we won. We are pleased to be working with you. KB is also bringing passports tomorrow again to the US Embassy in Tashkent for visa processing. We look forward to his arrival to the US. Sarvar
I wanted to thank again and again for obtaining my E1 Treaty Trader visa for me. The process was not easy, especially since our trade was all based on Technology. You knew the law, and was able to craft an outstanding file to be presented to Immigration. We are now ready to take the business to the next level. Toda Raba
Thanks for helping me with my marriage-based immigration case. You were very accessible - taking my calls, returning my messages and emails promptly. You answered all my questions. I was most impressed and relieved that you attended the immigration interview with me and my wife. You made the whole process streamline and simple. You really know your stuff, and you're a nice, friendly guy as well. Shane P.
