Things immigrants should know upon arrival to the US:
1. Only go to an attorney or accredited representative if you have immigration questions
2. Lawyers must have a license to practice law – ask to see their law license
3. Accredited representatives have to be accredited and work for an agency recognized by the Board of Immigration Appeals – ask to see their accreditation documents
4. Never sign an application with false information
5. Never sign a blank form
6. Ask for copies of everything you sign
7. Get a second opinion before filing any immigration application, especially if the advice sounds too good to be true
8. Notaries or Notary Publics are not attorneys and cannot give legal advice
9. There is NO new amnesty
10. There are proposed changes in immigration law but these are only proposals and are not laws; no one can apply for lawful permanent residency under those proposals
11. You cannot apply for lawful permanent residency because you have been in the United States for a long time unless you have lived here continuously since January 1, 1972
12. If you apply for employment authorization or lawful permanent residency when you do not qualify, the Department of Homeland Security will start removal proceedings against you, which may result in your removal from the United States
13. A lawful permanent resident may lose this status if he/she commits a crime or if he/she is outside the United States for more than six months without advance permission from the Department of Homeland Security
