Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr was quoted by the Washington Post in “A Maryland Immigrant Hoped to Delay His Deportation Until Biden Took Office. It Didn’t Work.” The article reports on a case in which a man who had been in the United States for 20 years and has three small U.S.-born children was followed in his car by an unmarked vehicle, pulled over, and deported. He said that unilateral actions by ICE grew increasingly common under the Trump administration, but vary by regional office. Steve said that although such moves are legal, they go against the spirit of laws passed in sanctuary jurisdictions such as Prince George’s County, Maryland (where the incident occurred), which explicitly barred county agencies from engaging in immigration enforcement.

Steve was quoted in the San Francisco Chronicle in “New Asylum Rule Bars Gays, Lesbians Facing Persecution, Immigrants Threatened With Violence.” Steve said the rule is “an asylum-hater’s dream” that “will gut the U.S. asylum system. Effectively, very few people will be able to win asylum.” The article is available at

Steve was quoted by the Dallas Morning News in “Will DACA Survive the Litigation Roller Coaster?” He said that an upcoming decision by a federal judge who was appointed by former President George W. Bush could be grim for DACA recipients. “Given Judge Hanen’s past decisions on this issue, I think he is likely to rule that the DACA program is illegal.” Appeals, or the issuance of new executive measures, could result in lengthy litigation before there’s a final decision, he said.

Steve was quoted by Univision in “Cómo la regla final de asilo del gobierno de Trump deja sin opciones a los migrantes.” He said that a new final rule on asylum “will radically restrict the ability of people fleeing persecution to obtain asylum in the United States.” The final rule also revised the procedural rules “to allow immigration judges to deny asylum applications without a hearing if they lack certain evidence. This will particularly harm applicants without a lawyer,” he noted. The article is available in Spanish at
