GOVERNOR-ELECT PHIL MURPHY'S VISION FOR 2018 IMMIGRATION IN NEW JERSEY

By Edward Shulman, Posted in Immigration Law

By Edward Shulman, Posted in Immigration Law

Despite the fact that many regions within Puerto Rico remain without power post-hurricane, the devastated island still continues to run a live video stream between an immigration court in Guaynabo, and the Elizabeth Detention Center in New Jersey due to a significant backlog in the U.S. Immigration system.  Indeed, for many immigration detainees, they will "meet" their adjudicating Judge who will decide their fate via video hookup on a television monitor.When interviewed about the situation, Immigratio... read more.
