Traveling Abroad Before Your Advance Parole Document is Issued May Cause Serious Problems

 

If you have a pending Adjustment of Status (Form I-485), your lawyer has likely cautioned you (repeatedly) that traveling abroad before your Advance Parole document is issued may result in the denial of your I-485. These cautions should be taken seriously and any traveling during Adjustment of Status should be carefully considered prior to leaving the U.S.

Peace Bridge Construction Project Approved

Peace Bridge Construction Project Approved

A construction proposal that would dramatically reshape the Peace Bridge was approved by the federal government this past week. The project’s main focus will be to improve the way vehicles get on and off the Peace Bridge. The project will cost an estimated $35 million with the creation of new entrance and exit ramps, and a pedestrian bridge to the shoreline trail. 

The work is intended to get rid of the confusing lane-switching maze that often disrupts traffic going on and off the bridge. The new work will also put an end to the ability of some drivers to mistakenly skip right through the primary border security checkpoint. This will allow border agents to shift from having to watch for such incidents to devoting their full attention to quickly processing vehicles.

Enhanced Border Security Plans Include New Biometric Technologies

 

In May of 2013, CBP created a new office, within the existing Office of Field Operations, called the Entry/Exit Transformation (EXT) Office. The Entry/Exit Transformation team’s mission is to enhance the integrity of the immigration system through assurance of traveler identity. The ultimate goal is to verify who is arriving in the U.S., determine who is abiding by the terms of their admission and who is not, and when individuals depart – all while enhancing border security and not interrupting the normal flow of travel or trade.
