As immigration attorneys, Springer & Lyle have seen their share of legal cases affecting immigrant rights. However, one thing remains the same: the U.S. Constitution and due process rights protect all people in the U.S., not just certain groups. Despite politics, common sentiment, or current affairs, the Constitution and the Supreme Court’s reading of the matter have repeatedly decided and ordered the government to respect the rights of immigrants. That means that most due process rights have to be protected and followed, regardless of a person’s citizenship status.
In these times, with all the media and chatter in the newspapers about political rhetoric, it’s easy for someone with an immigrant background to feel anxious and nervous. People in social settings are quick to spout their opinions, without regard for others’ backgrounds may be hearing them. Nonetheless, the actual law on the matter has not changed. Legal immigrants have many of the same protections in terms of criminal and civil rights as citizens with only a few exceptions (voting, serving on a jury, serving in specific elected offices). However, sometimes government agencies and their personnel need to be reminded of this fact, and that’s where Springer & Lyle come into the picture.
Springer and Lyle’s attorneys are versed on the latest legal changes, case law, protections, and due process rights as they specifically apply to all immigrants, including those who did not arrive through approved channels. Attorneys who represent your needs in an immigration case are the legal experts to have on your side to navigate the procedural and due process issues that often dictate the outcome of a case. And that matters because government agencies don’t get personal. Their focus is on moving caseloads. And that means your personal needs can be overlooked without the right representation on your side.
