The United States Immigration System
According to U.S. immigration law, there are four basic principles: reunification of families, allowing immigrants with useful skills to enter the country, and protecting refugees. In the United States, immigration law is codified in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The INA allows the United States to grant up to 675,000 permanent immigrant visas each year across various immigration categories.
In addition to the 675,000 visas, the INA does not limit the number of spouses, parents, and children under 21 allowed to enter the country each year. A number of refugees is also set by the president, each year, after consultation with Congress, via the U.S. Refugee Admission Program.

Green Cards & Work Permits
With all of this in mind, The Cassell Firm can help all types of immigrants looking to apply for their green cards or work permits within the U.S. While applying for a work permit can seem like a fairly simple process, even the most basic mistakes can mean the difference between getting approved and denied, whether it’s your first time around or you are looking to renew your status.
Your ability to work in the United States is not something you should risk. The Cassell Firm office can help you keep up with the timeline to file your renewal application, make sure that all of the required supporting evidence is included, and give you the best chance of continued permission to work.
Temporary Protected Status
Similarly, Temporary Protected Status, or “TPS” provides people from certain countries that are experiencing ongoing armed conflict, environmental disaster, or other extraordinary conditions that make it unsafe to return, with temporary legal status in the United States. While, TPS is typically designated for only those countries where there is civil war, a natural disaster like a hurricane or earthquake, or similar circumstances, if you are unsure of your current standing or status, The Cassell Firm can work with you to determine the best course of action.
If you or a family member has been detained and placed in removal proceedings in immigration court, you might be wondering if and how you will be able to get out of detention and reunite with your family. Immigration court cases can go on for years so typically this is the first and most important priority for detainees or their families. At The Cassell Firm, our dedicated lawyers can help you figure out the best plan of action for your family.
When it comes to deportation, if you and your family are nervous about your current standing within the United States, it may be time to connect with an immgration lawyer. The immigration court system is the mechanism by which citizens of other countries are placed in removal proceedings and deported from the United States.
You can be placed in removal even if you are considered legal within the U.S. Being in immigration court is one of the most distressing and uncertain situations for individuals and families. It can be difficult to understand what is happening and how you should move forward. The Cassell Firm can ensure that your case is handled with the utmost care and attention it needs to ensure your safety and permanency within the United States.
