LOS ANGELES, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Last month, the Los Angeles Times reported that eight senators who spent weeks working on a bipartisan bill to overhaul immigration laws agreed on the most contentious part of the recent draft—how to offer legal status to the nation's 11 million undocumented immigrants. However, the group known as the "Gang of Eight" recently missed a self-imposed deadline to submit their bill by the end of March, leading some to question whether meaningful reform may be in jeopardy. Yet, in spite of the setback, Henry A. Posada, the renowned immigration lawyer Los Angeles has trusted for over 17 years, is still confident that reform is on the horizon.

Henry A. Posada is the founder of the Law Offices of Henry A. Posada and a certified specialist in immigration and nationality law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization, a distinction achieved by a small minority of California immigration attorneys. The Law Offices of Henry A. Posada also handles all areas of immigration law, and has particular expertise in the intersection of immigration and criminal law.

As an immigration attorney in Los Angeles who truly empathizes with the difficulties of legalization in the U.S., Henry A. Posada supports reform that helps ease the process for vulnerable and deserving immigrants. Mr. Posada wants to ensure that, any time people are in need of immigration services, be it defense against removal, permanent resident status, citizenship, or a work permit, California immigrants obtain the services of an honest attorney with a proven track record to work on their cases. This stance has been made evident by the many years of service Mr. Posada has provided to immigrants seeking assistance with their immigration needs. 

ABC News reports that last year, seven in ten Latino voters backed the president's reelection bid, making reform an important issue for Democrats. President Obama has promised he would propose his own immigration bill if Congress fails to act meaningfully on its own. However, Obama maintains he is "optimistic... [Congress] will introduce a bill".

Republican officials also have a vested interest in passing meaningful reform. Henry A. Posada believes that in order for the Republican Party to avoid extinction, it will need to revise its restrictive position on the subject of immigration.  If the GOP is to be relevant, "it will have to address immigration," says Posada, "and once and for all work to enact sensible laws...laws that unite families, not break them; laws that import, not export, talent from around the world into our industries; and laws that provide for humane enforcement."

As Republicans and Democrats wrestle for the direction of immigration policy in the U.S., Henry A. Posada will remain a valuable source of insight regarding immigration policy and the rights of immigrants in the U.S. Anyone with questions pertaining to their own immigration status of that of a loved one can contact the Law Offices of Henry A.
