Texas happens to be a border state in the U.S., which means it also happens to be a common entry point for people who emigrate to this country from other places of origin. Whether you have recently arrived in this state or have been living and working here for quite some time, you might experience moments of anxiety or confusion regarding yours or a loved one's legal status, as well as U.S. immigration laws in general. Such laws are complex, and policies often change.
This makes it difficult for the average person to stay updated unless he or she happens to have a legal background and is well-versed in immigration issues. Encountering an Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer might rank high on your list of potentially unsettling experiences. It's critical to know your rights and how to protect them if a problem arises.
