Immigration Attorney Darius Amiri on Griner Arrest

Phoenix Mercury  basketball star Brittney Griner is being detained in Russia after authorities there said they found cannabis cartridges in her luggage. Several news outlets have reported that the offense of smuggling a narcotic substance in that country is “punishable by up to 10 years in prison.” 3TV in Phoenix talked to Rose Law Group Immigration Department Chair Darius Amiri about the difficult situation Griner finds herself in. “It’s important to remember these are allegations, and they’re allegations from a country that often tries to control and manipulate the narrative,” Amiri says. “I just thought to myself, ‘What absolute terrible timing’… I think, unfortunately, she may find herself a political pawn. And you hate for someone’s life liberty of freedom to be caught up in those circumstances.”

Attorney Darius Amiri Speaks On Migrant Smuggling In Arizona

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office says a woman accused of smuggling two migrants led deputies on a high-speed chase that ended in Phoenix. The suspect, 19-year-old Alma Rodriguez Dominguez, was taken into custody on Friday. Immigration attorney Darius Amiri spoke on the matter with Arizona's Family.

"I think it's just something you're going to see with the combination of the proximity to the Mexican border and a tough economic time where someone may think this is an easy way to make a little extra money and not really thinking about the consequences of what they're doing."

Comments On SCOTUS DACA Decision
An Update On The Public Charge Rule
New DACA applications not being considered
On July 28, over a month after the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of DACA, Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf issued a memo stating that USCIS would not consider first time applications for DACA, and that those enrolled in the DACA program filing for renewals would only be able to apply for one year work permits and protection from deportation, instead of the two years they were afforded since the onset of DACA in 2012. The memo also raised the threshold for DACA recipients to qualify for advance parole, a benefit that allows them to leave the US and return, limiting this relief to only urgent humanitarian concerns or significant public benefit.
Updates on DACA Advance Parole 63 views•Sep 14, 2020
Advance Parole is an application filed with USCIS which allows an immigrant to travel outside of the United States and return lawfully. USCIS would consider Advance Parole applications for DACA holders if they could establish an educational, employment based, or humanitarian basis for the need to travel. Unfortunately, following the Supreme Court DACA decision a few months ago, Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf issued a memorandum on DACA and advance parole stating that USCIS would now only consider issuing an Advance Parole if urgent humanitarian reasons or a significant public benefit is established. So those with the need to travel for work, study abroad, or even visit sick or aging family members may be precluded under this new interpretation.
