Removal hearing cancellations due to government shutdown

Many Pennsylvania immigrants are currently detained for various reasons. While some immigrant may have sought asylum and must reside in detention until their cases are fully processed, others may be scheduled for a removal hearing. The current, partial U.S. government shutdown is reportedly having a negative impact on many immigrants, especially those who were prepared to appear at interviews or hearings, who have since been told that their appointments are indefinitely postponed.

Officials say man faced deportation multiple times before arrest

Not everyone who emigrates from other countries of origin to Pennsylvania does so with all the proper paperwork in order. Many immigrants flee situations of violence or persecution, seeking asylum when they arrive at U.S. borders. Undocumented immigrants are undoubtedly at great risk for deportation.  

Traffic stop led to a serious immigration detention problem

Pennsylvania residents who entered the United States without proper immigration paperwork may take interest in the case of a man in another state. It is not uncommon for undocumented immigrants to hold paying jobs, drive cars and otherwise contribute to local and national economies by carrying out normal duties of work and family life in the United States. Immigration detention problems can arise however, if Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents get involved.  

Man's immigration detention ends when judge orders his release

Many people in Pennsylvania, along with others throughout the nation, were outraged back in July when a 35-year-old immigrant man was arrested while doing his job as a pizza delivery driver. He was stopped at a U.S. army base where he was sent to deliver food. Instead of being allowed to make the delivery, he was arrested and placed in an immigration detention center.

Deportation is on the minds of many Southeast Asian immigrants

If all Southeast Asian families in Pennsylvania were to be surveyed regarding challenges they have overcome when adapting to immigrant life in the United States, their answers may be quite similar. In fact, at least 16,000 Southeast Asian families are currently trying to resolve deportation issues. Such situations are often highly stressful and financially draining on those involved.  

Immigration detention: Mother says her child almost died

Like many mothers who immigrate to Pennsylvania, a woman with three children in tow says she fled her life in another country because she feared continued violence from her husband. She and her children traveled for several weeks by bus before being apprehended at a U.S. border and placed in a detention center. The woman says the immigration detention experience almost caused her daughter's death.

Immigration detention center under investigation

Many families in Pennsylvania and elsewhere are currently worried about loved ones whose immigration legal statuses have been called into question. Other families in the nation can relate to the fear and high stress levels that often accompany such situations. Immigration detention centers can be scary places and allegedly dangerous as well, as a recent tragedy shows. A mother has lost a child, and so far, no one has given her concrete answers as to the cause of her child's death.

Father of 3 hoping to avoid deportation in another state

There are currently many Pennsylvania immigrants being held in detention. Each situation is unique, but many share common issues as well. A man in another state can relate to those who are husbands and fathers who are facing possible deportation.

Worker in another state facing immigration detention problems

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.  

Some say they'd rather die than face immigration detention

Many Pennsylvania households include residents who emigrated from other countries of origin. Such journeys often include significant challenges, especially if an immigrant's paperwork is not in order. In fact, thousands of people are apprehended at various U.S. border stations, and then placed in immigration detention centers while they await final decisions regarding their requests to enter the United States.
