Immigration Lawyers See Influx of Calls

PHOENIX - In the week and a half since SB 1070 was signed into law, thousands of people who call Arizona home are at a loss at what to do next. They're flooding immigration law officers with phone calls.

Some permanent residents and others with visas have asked for clarification in which documents they'll need to carry with them.

Immigration attorney Judy Flanagan says she's received hundreds of calls asking about what the law means to them.

Some families are at risk of being separated from each other, and Flanagan says that's one of the biggest concerns of potential clients. There's sometimes a Catch-22 situation -- if some family members are legal and others aren't.

  • "There is no reason for a healthy, bright, strong American to be losing his/her livelihood to an illegal immigrant. If that's the case, someone has obviously not used their God given talents and let opportunities pass them by. No excuse at all. What were these folks going when the times were good? What's their educational level and work history? "

    Do you have a clue what the graduation rate is in this country? 1 in 4 don't graduate. Some states are closer to 2 in 4.

    We have plenty of uneducated, unskilled people in this country. Unfortunately, they compete with illegals who are willing to work under the table and often for less than minimum wage.

    Shouldn't we be helping the poor, uneducated, unskilled people in our country? Or would you prefer to keep them on welfare while giving jobs to illegal aliens?

    Some families are at risk of losing their livlihood and family members because of illegals.  Which some wins?  Legal Citizens or Illegal immigrants?

     There is no reason for a healthy, bright, strong American to be losing his/her livelihood to an illegal immigrant. If that's the case, someone has obviously not used their God given talents and let opportunities pass them by. No excuse at all. What were these folks going when the times were good? What's their educational level and work history? Drama used to evolk reaction-

    There are plenty of jobs that illegal have that American's could have if they were not here working for peanuts. Not every American can afford to go to college, and if you haven't noticed there are quite a few Americans who can not get jobs in their field of expertise because of the rescission
