A word on the 2016 U.S. presidential election

News Release from Jewell Stewart & Pratt PC Dear Clients & Friends -

The 2016 presidential election resulted in news that many of us were not expecting: Donald Trump will become the president of the United States when he is sworn into office on January 20, 2017. This raises many questions, as the potential effects of a new administration may reach many areas of our immigration system, and, in spite of campaign rhetoric, there is uncertainty as to what those changes may look like, and when they might be implemented.

We are a nation built by immigrants and strengthened by each new generation. Our firm strongly believes that our shared prosperity relies on the innovation and creativity of immigrants from all over the world, from all walks of life, and from all faiths and cultural traditions.  We continue to commit to working tirelessly to help our clients achieve their dreams.

We are following legal developments and will carefully consider strategies and implications for our clients’ cases as information becomes available. Our dedicated staff of attorneys and paralegals will use every resource and tool at our disposal to further our work that promotes justice and will advocate for fair and reasonable immigration law and policy. As we learn more about the new administration’s intended actions, we are available to discuss your options and answer any questions.
