Which Agencies Handle Immigration?
Answers from an Immigration Attorney in Orlando
There are a number of agencies that handle immigration cases and play roles in immigration processes. An individual undergoing an immigration case or facing removal will require an understanding of the government agency that is handling their case. Attorneys Robert Brown, Rishi Oza, Erin Brown, and Aleksandar Cuic from our firm are knowledgeable regarding the following agencies:
Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
The Department of Homeland Security is the umbrella organization that manages many other immigration agencies. The primary mission of the DHS is to protect the country from any foreign and domestic threats. The immigration department provides services to immigrants and enforces immigration laws.
Department of Justice (DOJ)
The Department of Justice is responsible for administering justice to citizens and those residing in the United States. The attorney general is in charge of this agency, which aims to defend the interests of the United States and ensure that laws are obeyed.
Department of Labor (DOL)
The United States Department of Labor aims to protect those employed or seeking a job in the United States and those who are retired. Its goal is to make sure that United States citizens are protected in matters that concern occupation.
