When President-Elect Donald Trump is sworn into office on January 20, 2017, immigration policies will be at the top of the new administration’s agenda. We anticipate that changes in this uncharted post-Obama era will be announced gradually and will affect aliens in communities throughout California and across the country.
The legal team at Nalbandian Law, an immigration firm in the Los Angeles area, will be closely monitoring the changes in U.S. immigration policies and procedures on a daily basis. We will frequently post important breaking news and updates on our Nalbandian Law Facebook page , so we urge you to stay informed by following us on Facebook.
At this point in time, we do know that the following immigration issues are “red-flag” areas of real concern for aliens:
The DACA program was created by an executive order by President Barack Obama in 2012. DACA allows certain undocumented immigrants in the United States who entered the country before their 16th birthday and before June 2007 to receive a renewable two-year work permit and exemption from deportation. DACA was met with tremendous relief and elation by this special group of immigrants. They would no longer have to worry about I.C.E. (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents knocking on their door in the middle of the night and taking them into custody to await deportation back to their native country.
During his presidential campaign, Mr. Trump repeated promised to “immediately terminate” the DACA program. Therefore, Nalbandian Law and many other immigration firms expect the Trump administration to discontinue President Obama’s executive order as soon as possible.
For undocumented non-criminal aliens who have DACA applications pending, the outcome is currently unclear. Many immigration attorneys are advising undocumented aliens eligible for DACA to not apply, because the biographic information on their applications could be used to track them down for deportation, which in the past DHS (Department of Homeland Security has promised not to do.
According to Department of Homeland Security statistics, more than 740,000 people have been approved to receive DACA status. The biggest fear is that the Trump administration will place this vast database in the hands of I.C.E. agents who then will go door-to-door, detaining and deporting hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who had finally felt safe and secure.

If your asylum case, for example, was denied by the U.S. Court of Appeals, don’t give up. You still may be able to have your order of removal reopened and remain in the United States. “Nalbandian Law has successfully represented asylum clients who had lost their final appeal when another attorney was handling their case,” said lead immigration attorney Sassoun A. Nalbandian, “and we were still able to have their cases reopened. So don’t give up.” In recent cases, Mr. Nalbandian has been able to prove to the immigration court that:

“Attorney Sassoun Nalbandian worked his magic! My uncle had been trying to get asylum for 14 years and could have easily been deported after such a long time… After hearing the facts about my uncle’s plight, he took his case. His fee was reasonable, and he was very responsible. He never promised us things he couldn’t deliver, and he never gave us the false security of a guarantee. He told us what to reasonably expect and what we could do if all our efforts failed. I’m happy to report that Mr. Nalbandian worked his magic. When my uncle was granted asylum, I can honestly say that Mr. Nalbandian was responsible for giving me one of the most joyful days of my life.” — Mariam, N. Hollywood, CA
