Many Pennsylvania households include family members who came to the U.S. from other countries of origin. Sometimes, family members live in separate homes from their relatives, within the same community. If legal status problems arise regarding deportation, it can be devastating for entire families and communities.
When you arrived in Pennsylvania as an immigrant, you assumed there might be challenges ahead as you slowly became integrated with your new surroundings. However, you had high hopes because raising your family in the United States has been a long-time dream of yours and it was finally coming to fruition. Perhaps you're one of many immigrants whose ultimate goals include applying for U.S. citizenship. Avoiding immigration detention and other deportation-related issues may also be a high priority.
