Today, I.C.E. (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents seem to be everywhere; airports, train and bus stations and at all the prisons and jails, causing many non-citizens with spouses and children, who have been in this country for several years with good jobs, to be deported in record numbers every day. Successful and well respected immigration lawyers are ready to help you.
When I.C.E. picks up a loved one, one of the first things we do is make a motion for a bail hearing. Getting the person out of jail is our first priority, and we do this as fast as we can.

Cancellation of Removal
This relief is available for immigrants and lawful permanent residents who are at risk of losing their green cards.
