Residents outside North Carolina attempt to avoid deportation

Laws affecting undocumented immigrants are a controversial topic of current events to say the least. More than 20 years ago, in a state far west of North Carolina, a 3-year-old girl was brought to America by a Mexican mother who claimed that she was attempting to flee an abusive relationship. Her story is not uncommon, and many find themselves crossing American borders in search of a better life and later attempting to find a way to avoid deportation.

In 2012, that little girl was in her twenties, and she was able to request deferment of deportation through an act that provided for those who had been brought to the United States as children. Receiving the deferment allowed her to acquire a license to drive, thus enabling her to gain better employment and a nicer home. One congressman is accused of making remarks that suggest that such immigrants have tried to take advantage of the American system.

Recently, many traveled across the nation to speak out against such alleged comments and express their desire for more policies that will assist undocumented immigrants, especially those brought across American borders as children. A 32-year-old Texas man was part of the brigade and stated that the positions of certain potential candidates for the presidency have been a disappointment to immigrants like himself. He said that he wishes they would place less focus on the nation's borders and more on helping those in need.

Any resident of North Carolina, now an adult, who was brought to America as an undocumented immigrant might wish to seek the advice of a legal professional with experience in cases dealing with immigration and naturalization laws. Wanting to avoid deportation is a common desire among such immigrants. Sound legal guidance would most likely be of benefit to those considering applying for a deferment or simply hoping to gain better understanding of the options available.
