Can 'dreamers' leave the country and return?

Nicknamed "dreamers," those allowed to stay in the United States under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program must know exactly what legal rights and obligations they have. This was a program that started under President Barack Obama, and some residents are still protected under its guidelines.

Immigrants have been deported without their belongings

Would you assume that those who are detained and then deported from the United States would at least be given their belongings back when they were forced to leave? After all, prisoners are given their belongings when released from jail.

Employee abuse is rife among immigrant farm workers

As you know, the agricultural industry in America largely depends on migrant workers. Many immigrants from Mexico, Puerto Rico and elsewhere come to the United States to find a better life. Often, they start out in a skilled labor industry, such as agriculture or construction. You also know that you and your family can hope for a better future here, but you might have to work hard to realize your dreams. Unfortunately, many migrants in Louisiana suffer mistreatment from their employers because they can use their workers' fear of deportation or lack of knowledge to exploit them.
