PATERSON MAYOR JOINS OTHER CITIES IN BACKING OBAMA

Mayor Jose "Joey" Torres of Paterson, New Jersey announced that he would be part of the Cities United for Immigration Action (CUIA) effort to back President Obama in appealing the Texas judge’s ruling in February that halted implementation of a plan that would protect millions of unauthorized immigrants from being deported.  In this effort, Paterson joined dozens of other municipalities across the country in supporting the administration's stalled effort to set forth immigration executive actions.  In addition to Paterson, at least five other New Jersey municipalities joined the legal brief, including Haledon, Hoboken, Jersey City, Newark, and Plainfield. More than 70 cities and countries filed a "friend-of-the-court" brief urging immediate implementation of the Executive Order President Obama set forth last November.

Notably, the cities and counties are arguing that the district court judge, who temporarily blocked implementation of the immigration programs, failed to consider the significant adverse impact that the protracted delay has had and will continue to have on U.S. economy, families, and local government.  The localities filing the legal brief further highlighted how the stalling of these critically important immigration actions threatens law enforcement priorities and detrimentally halts progress towards needed changes to the federal government’s immigration policies.

The Shulman Law Group, LLC remains on the pulse of this situation in order to best educate our existing and potential new clients about any changes in the pending immigration case related to President Obama's Executive Order.

To make the long story short - I wouldn't be here now writing this review if it wasn't for him. He fought with me and for me as if he was defending himself and not some stranger from a foreign country. I will highly recommend him - if your case has any chance at all he is the one you need.
