Passionate About Helping You Achieve the American Dream
If you are considering immigrating to the U.S., you need a skilled attorney who can help you navigate the process with minimal complications. At the Southern California Immigration Law Center, we know how to protect the rights of undocumented immigrants throughout Southern California. We also handle immigration cases across the country.
Even as an undocumented immigrant, you have legal rights. Becoming more informed and actively aware of the protections available to you can help make certain that your rights are not violated. Our lead attorney, James A. Welcome, is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. We are not afraid to represent your rights in court if they have been impeded upon by law enforcement or public defenders, you can trust our legal team to fight tirelessly on your behalf in court.
Just as there are many reasons why an individual or family may want to immigrate or establish permanent residency in the United States, there are also many ways to go about completing the immigration process. Our skilled legal team has spent countless hours helping individuals and families accomplish their ultimate dreams.
We handle cases involving the following:
Applying for a green card
Applying for citizenship
Special immigrant juvenile protection
What Are My Rights?
Due to misconceptions and misguided assumptions, many people think that undocumented immigrants do not have rights or protections under the law. This could not be further from the truth. The United States Constitution extends legal protections to all individuals residing within the borders of the U.S., which includes undocumented immigrants.
Your rights can include the following
Protection from unreasonable search and seizure
Protection from self-incrimination
The right to remain silent and the right to retain legal counsel
The right to defend yourself from deportation
Employment rights, including protection from discrimination
If your rights have been violated during a confrontation with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, you must speak with a San Diego immigration attorney from our firm. We believe that there is nothing that can excuse behavior which infringes upon your rights. If law enforcement arrested you without a valid warrant or if you have been threatened in any way, you could be facing deportation. As a result of illegal tactics, countless individuals have suffered the consequences and have been forced apart from their families and jobs.
