Miller Mayer’s Steve Yale-Loehr Quoted Regarding DACA, Supreme Court Case

Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr was quoted by CNN in “Supreme Court Will Take Up Immigration-Related Case Next Term.

The case, Kansas v. Garcia, concerns Kansas’ prosecution of three immigrants for using stolen Social Security numbers for employment. The Kansas Supreme Court overturned their convictions, ruling that federal immigration law preempts a state from prosecuting undocumented immigrants when the claim is based on information culled from federal immigration forms. If the Supreme Court overturns the Kansas court’s decision, he noted, “all states could prosecute noncitizens for identity theft more easily. The Supreme Court largely struck down Arizona’s similar efforts in 2012. Given the change in Supreme Court members since then, it will be interesting to see how the court revisits the issue.”

Miller Mayer immigration attorney was quoted by the Houston Chronicle in “Flight Attendant With DACA Released After Month in Detention for Mexico Flight.

“This shows how broken our immigration system is. Immigration law is very complicated and [U.S. Customs and Border Protection] has incredible power at the border, and this administration is exercising it to detain more people, rather than extending their discretion favorably.”
