    Yikes. I would suggest you get the employment authorization card (EAD) corrected with USCIS. I would carry the I-797 Receipt Notices and a copy of the EAD itself with evidence that you sent it back due to government error. If for any reason you are apprehended by ICE the photocopy of the EAD will alert ICE not to place you in removal proceedings. I understand how concerned you are about not having an ID in Arizona. This is a valid concern. Nonetheless, correcting the EAD so that all...

    He was very lucky that he was not arrested by the Arizona police officer who stopped him. Did the officer articulate a reason for the stop?

Third, you will be given the opportunity to visit him during the weekend and federal holidays only. This process takes about 2 weeks to...

    The notion that once a non-citizen is eligible for lawful permanent residence status after living in the U.S. for more than 10 years is one of the greatest myths of immigration law. An undocumented individual who has lived in the U.S. for over 10 years, has a qualifying relative (child, parent, spouse) who is either a U.S. Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident, is a person of good moral character, and is able to demonstrate that the qualifying relative(s) will suffer "extreme and...
