 Kerry Bretz Condemns President Trump’s Executive Order to Bar People from Middle Eastern Countries

Just days after President Trump signed two executive orders to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, increase border patrol and immigration enforcement forces, reinstate the Secure Communities program and deny federal funding to “sanctuary cities,” the president issued a third immigration executive order that will temporarily bar people from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the U.S., stop Syrian refugee admissions, suspend the general refugee admission program for about four months and lay out new vetting requirements. Kerry Bretz, Partner, Bretz & Coven, LLP, says these recent executive orders will only punish those who are already in the country with a valid visa and keep those apart from their family members who are already living in the U.S.

Immigration Consequences of Criminal and Fraudulent Conduct
The immigration consequences of criminal or fraudulent conduct can be harsh and often illogical. Even a very minor offense could have a dramatic immigration consequence, including deportation, detention without bond, being denied naturalization, a visa or re-entry into the United States. Likewise, the use of fake or fraudulent documents, aliases, and other misrepresentations can have similar immigration consequences. Kerry Bretz and Bretz & Coven have been counseling non-citizen criminal defendants, as well as their lawyers, for over 20 years. We have a long history of strategizing deportation and removal defenses, as well as applications for waivers, in very complicated cases.
