“Navigating the labyrinth of the US Immigration law is not as simple as filling out forms. Anyone can fill out these forms. They are so complicated because of the legal issues underlying each question in the forms. Take for example the simple ‘date of entry’ question on most forms. How this is answered can trigger a myriad of consequences with the United States Department of Homeland Security, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Customs and Border Patrol, as well the United States Department of State. Never, simply fill out the forms and ‘hope’ the government will help you.” – Elias Mendoza, Esq.
