Facing Homeland Security or Immigration Challenges in New Jersey? An Experienced Defense Attorney Can Help
Put our experience with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to work for you
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was created by combining all or parts of 22 other federal agencies and departments, including the U.S. Coast Guard, Federal Protective Service, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Secret Service, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The Law Office of David Jay Glassman has experience navigating the maze of regulatory issues related to working with the organizations that are part of DHS — and the challenges involved in dealing with them.
What does DHS handle?
The Department of Homeland Security’s mission is to secure the United States from threats that range from terrorism to natural disasters. Thus, DHS has jurisdiction over the following matters:
- Smuggling investigations
- Issues related to chemical security
- Enforcement of customs matters
- Enforcement of immigration issues
- Security over many areas including transportation
While we generally think of DHS as the government body responsible for dealing with terrorist threats, its scope is much broader. And immigration enforcement is one area that falls within its jurisdiction.
Supporting immigrants in New Jersey
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), created in 2003 when the Customs Service and Immigration and Naturalization Service merged, detained more than 400,000 immigrants in 2011 — even though detention may have not been warranted in many cases and did little to enhance national security.
Our current immigration laws subject families with small children, elderly people and those with physical and mental health issues to deportation for relatively minor crimes. In many cases, those who are detained under the umbrella of Homeland Security may lack even the most basic healthcare. This happens under a system that costs American taxpayers more than $2 billion a year.
Additionally, we’ve seen numerous cases where a slight brush with the law results in a conviction that jeopardizes an immigrant or nonimmigrant foreign national’s status. We’ve been successful defending numerous clients against deportation.
At the Law Office of David Jay Glassman, we feel strongly that when your freedom and rights as an immigrant are at stake, your first phone call should be to us. Standing up to any government body can be challenging. We readily accept the challenge and fight aggressively for your rights.
