It's no secret that debates continue throughout the United States regarding U.S. immigration laws. These laws are complex and often change, leaving many Pennsylvania immigrants and their families frustrated, confused and worried that they may suffer negative consequences due to legal status problems. Family separations at U.S. borders has been a top issue in news headlines as of late. Some parents have understandably said they'd rather give up their requests for asylum than be kept from the children.
Many working fathers in Pennsylvania are immigrants who came to the United States from other countries of origin. Some, like one man who works as a pizza deliveryman in another state, married U.S. citizens. Unfortunately, even going through the process to obtain green cards does not always prevent immigration detention problems from occurring as made evident by the pizza shop worker's situation.
