As a Houston immigration lawyer, I work with immigrants and immigration officials constantly. This area of the law is quite complicated, and there are many different groups involved in the adjudication and enforcement of the laws. Each group has its own interests in the immigration debate. This news of Mississippi shows how not only an immigration agency disagrees with the president’s policies, but some states also disagree.
