“After a U.S. Senator could not help us get out of our country, someone told our friend in Port Townsend to contact Seifert Law Offices to help. The office immediately started my case. In less than a month the paper work was done and we were out of Guinea by January 2001. Had we not obtained the visas and stayed in Guinea we would not be alive to tell this story. Thank God we are now in the States, united with our daughter, sound and safe and thank God for Seifert Law Offices.”
The government responds to long and short term pressures on immigration by creating programs such as Temporary Protected Status (TPS), NACARA and DACA. Although DACA is currently “cancelled,” our team is ready to help DACA holders when they face challenges with US immigration or ICE.
TPS is temporary status for citizens of selected countries where natural or political disasters have occurred. TPS programs are renewed or cancelled every year.
NACARA was designed to release pressure of many denied asylum cases in the 1990s for natives of certain Central American and central European countries.
DACA is the currently cancelled program designed to give temporary protection and work authorization to young people who have completed some education. Although the program was halted in September of 2017, people continue to benefit from DACA.
