Immigration Attorney Karen-Lee Pollak was quoted in the Law360 Article, "What Attys Should Tell DACA Clients as Uneasiness Lingers".
The article provides recommendations from some of the nation's top immigration lawyers for DACA "Dream Act" clients seeking to navigate the turbulent immigration environment created by the Trump administration regarding Dreamers. Pollak is quoted regarding options beyond DACA:
- Consider Options Beyond DACA
Where possible, DACA recipients may also want to look for immigration options beyond the program, attorneys said. For instance, if someone qualifies through a relative, it could be possible to file a hardship waiver, to show difficulty that “would be suffered if they left the country," according to Karen-Lee Pollak of Pollak PLLC.
"In order to get their green card, if the [waiver] is approved, they would actually have to 'consular process,' so they'd have to leave the country to go to a consulate, to get their visa," Pollak noted.
