Protecting Your Rights in Ohio

Qualified Help from a Columbus Immigration Attorney

The founding fathers of the United States believed in open boarders and immigration for those who sought a better life. There are many individuals every year who seek to come to the United States for asylum, citizenship and many other reasons. There are also millions of individuals who are denied entry into the United States every year. In 1990 there was an act passed (called IMMACT) that limits the number of entries to the U.S. every year to 700,000 with a priority on family reunification and work.

This is beneficial to many individuals who are trying to reconnect with their family, and those who are seeking work; however there are many individuals who do not fall under these categories. If you are seeking immigration to the United States or if you are facing removal or deportation then it is vitally important that you retain skilled legal assistance on your side.
