Amid the uncertainty created by recent Executive Orders, proposed Congressional Bills, and rumors circulating on the internet, it is understandable that many are experiencing increased anxiety about their immigration status. In times like these, it is best to focus on what we know to be true and not on what others speculate could happen. No one can predict the future with certainty, but we can analyze the present facts and the known truths to anticipate future outcomes.
