Elliott Law Group, Leading Immigration Attorneys Servicing Spokane, Washington, and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Announces Statement on Immigration Crisis at US / Mexican Border

Immigrants Spokane, Washington – June 28, 2018. The Elliott Law Group, leading immigration attorneys servicing Spokane, Washington, and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, is announcing that a statement on the current immigration crisis at the US / Mexico border has been posted to their blog. The statement urges political leaders to act to alleviate the crisis and argues for the value of effective legal representation for all immigrants attempting to secure legal status in the United States.

“Unfortunately, we are witnessing the failure of the US immigration system at the border, a failure that is, unfortunately, being played out against the most vulnerable,” explained Lana Elliott, managing partner at the law firm. “Our statement advocates that our political leaders act to alleviate this crisis, and explains just how important effective legal representation is in the Byzantine US immigration system.”

Those looking for information on the immigration services offered by Elliott Law Group can visit Immigration Page, and note that the law firm has offices in both Spokane, Washington, and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. In addition, journalists and bloggers who are looking for greater understanding of how US immigration laws work are urged to reach out to the law firm for interview opportunities.

A Border Crisis Draws Attention to Immigration

Here is background on the release. Residents of Spokane, Washington, and/or Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, may not realize just how complex the US immigration system is. The crisis at the border, however, has brought into high relief how contradictions in the law can impact immigrants. The Trump Administration has taken a “hard line” towards border enforcement, resulting in the detention of more and more parents and consequently the separation of parents from children. Democrats and even Republicans have been highly critical of the actions, and the lay public may be confused as to what is required, or not, by the law. The statement calls on our political leaders to act quickly to alleviate this crisis and bring consistency and compassion to the enforcement of immigration law.

That said, immigrants who reside far from the border in Spokane, Washington, and/or Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, may still confront a very complicated and often contradictory immigration system. Effective representation by a Spokane or Coeur d’Alene immigration law firm is a must. Immigrants who are seeking assistance can reach out to the Elliott Law Firm for a consultation on their immigration status needs, including issues such as required visas, green cards, citizenship and other issues. The reality is that the average layperson needs a strong immigration lawyer at their side amidst a complicated system of US immigration laws.

Client Reviews
I applied for citizenship the first time, but my husband was previously denied citizenship. We hired Elliott Law Group and both Lana and Kate really exceeded our expectations. My husband and I just got sworn in as U.S. citizens! T.S.
I first hired Lana to help me obtain legal residency for my parents in 2006, then for my wife in 2007. She did a great job and my parents and wife got their green cards. Although Lana is not in California anymore, she still assists with immigration processes for other members of my family. I highly recommend her services to anyone who needs the help of a highly qualified immigration lawyer. S.P.
Good day, Atty. Lana. I would like to thank you for all the support and assistance. We appreciated and indeed, me and my wife very happy with how you handled my daughter’s case. We can personally say that we made the right decision for having your law office as our choice. tks a lot. V.N.
