We have seen bans on people from 7 Muslim countries, the turning away of refugees, the denial of admission to permanent residents, and the resurgence of raids at jobsites.Those here legally and illegally are now facing many challenges that were not present in the recent past. Although the executive orders have been stopped, I have some recommendations to help you survive this troubling time.1. If you are in love and in a real relationship think about making it official and getting married. In many cultures, we believe that being together is enough and marriage is not necessary but that is not the truth. If your already in a legitimate relationship take that next step and start legalizing your immigration status. So, that your children don’t lose a parent simply because you never decided to get married.2. If you are a permanent resident apply for citizenship so you are protected in case the executive or a harsher law is made.3. Permanent Residents if you have ever been charged with a crime do not travel. We have already seen families destroyed because a parent was denied entry to the United States.4. Make guardianship papers so if you are deported or detained someone that you trust can take care of your children, take them to school and/or to the doctor.5. Have copies of your family member’s documents in a safe place so that if they are detained you can give the documents to the immigration attorney so that they can start the process of getting your family member released.6. Finally, don’t drink and drive, don’t drive without a license, try to avoid negative contact with law enforcement. This is the time to be cautious.
